Business Committee (32nd Dáil)

The work of this Committee ceased with the dissolution of the 32nd Dáil on 14 January 2020.

After its weekly meeting, the Business Committee lays a report which lists the business that will be taken in the Dáil for the following week. The Business Committee considers, among other things, proposals for

  • dealing with items of business, including speaking times
  • taking legislation in the Dáil and Select Committees
  • sitting times and adjournments
  • selection of business for Thursday afternoons, such as Private Members’ Bills or committee reports

 Members who wish to have a Bill or a committee report considered on a Thursday afternoon should give notice to the business committee.

 The adoption of Dáil Standing Order 27A established the Business Committee.
