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 complete rules on the Business Committee are in Dáil Standing Orders 28 to 34.
