Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Description of Senior Counsel.

asked the Taoiseach whether, in view of the fact that certain members of the Inner Bar who received their patents as senior counsel continue to describe themselves as king's counsel, he will introduce a Bill entitled an Act to declare that the description of a senior counsel shall be senior counsel.

I have no intention of wasting public time and money on a legislative proposal such as that suggested by the Deputy.

Is the Taoiseach not aware that within recent months a similar Bill was brought into this House without any more justification, that he introduced here a Bill to declare that the description of the State should be The Republic of Ireland, and that there is no more excuse for it?

The Deputy will have to swallow that.

I want to know from the Taoiseach——

Question No. 3.

I propose, with your permission, to raise the matter on the Adjournment.
