Private Business. - Dréacht-Bhunreacht, 1937—Céad Chéim.

Tairigim go dtugtar cead chun an Dréacht-Bhunreachta do thabhairt isteach.

When is it proposed to take the Second Stage?

Tá sé ceapaithe an Dara Céim do `thógaint ar an 14adh lá d'Abrán.

When will the Constitution be circulated?

Tuairim seachtain roimis sin—about a week before the 14th, say the 7th April. I hope to have it ready about that time.

How long will it take to read it?

Is it intended to have the Second Reading within a week after the circulation of the document?

I hope so.

That is unfair to the House.

What does the President mean when he says he hopes or it is intended to have it ready by the 7th of April? When asked the question he said he hoped so.

Yes, I hope so.

It would be so dangerous to say "Yes."

There is only one week to elapse between the circulation and the Second Reading?

That is the present hope.

Where is it hoped or who hopes that that will be the case?

If the interval is too short we will see whether further time cannot be given.

It is only another empty formula.

Do tugadh cead, agus do horduiodh an Dara Céim do thógaint an 14adh lá d'Abrán.
