There is a small matter of procedure. I do not know that it has been definitely announced that Deputies must sign the Roll outside? Some members did not do it yesterday or to-day. I wish to know if it is imperative that they should do so. Perhaps it would be well to give us an opportunity of doing so now.
CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. - SIGNING OF THE ROLL.
That is a matter for members themselves. Every facility will be accorded, to members to sign every day.
There is presumably, a purpose in having a roll there for signature. Can we know, Mr. Chairman, what the purpose is?
For Members themselves to register their attendance.
If the roll is not signed, is it to be presumed that a Member is not in attendance?
Not necessarily, except that if it is not signed that proof would not he forthcoming.
