Public Business. - Minerals Development Bill, 1940—From the Seanad.

When is it proposed to deal with the amendments to this Bill?

We will take them now, if the House is agreeable.

Would the Minister leave them over until the other business is disposed of?

Certainly.

Is the Minister accepting all these amendments?

The amendments will be taken after item No. 15.

I do not know whether No. 15 will be finished this evening, but we could take them as first business to-morrow.

But the Minister promised to-morrow for the motion by Deputy Hughes and myself.

I was hoping there would not be much debate on them.

The Minister will be here for items Nos. 14 and 15?

We will take them after Item No. 14.
