Before the Minister speaks on this Bill, I should like to say that we have not been notified of the amendments from the Seanad which the Minister proposes to take. I think it would be well if the Minister were to give us notice of the amendments from the Seanad that he proposes to accept, and then give us a few hours to consider them. Perhaps this Bill could be taken a little later in the evening.
PUBLIC BUSINESS. - FORESTRY BILL, 1928—FROM THE SEANAD.
There are twenty-one amendments from the Seanad, and I propose to accept them all. I should say that three-fourths of them are drafting amendments. The only amendments of importance are numbers 13, 14 and 15.
Would the Minister be satisfied to take this Bill a little later to-day, because so far we have not been made aware of the amendments that he proposes to accept?
Would the Deputy indicate what position on the Order Paper this Bill should take now?
Perhaps after item No. 6.
I take it now that there is a fair understanding that doing what the Deputy suggests will not be regarded as an opportunity for presenting such obstacles as regards the consideration of item No. 6 that we will not be able to get over it to-day in order to reach the Forestry Bill?
That is not my intention. I do not know what is going to happen to item No. 6. I would be satisfied if the business under consideration at 6 or 7 o'clock were interrupted for the purpose of taking the Forestry Bill.
