Order of Business.

Business will be taken in the following order, as set out on the Order Paper: Nos. 1, 4, 10, 8, 9, 6, 11 and 7. It is not proposed that public business be interrupted to take Private Members' business.

Is it proposed to sit on Friday?

I do not think it will be necessary but I shall let the Deputy know to-morrow.

Is there any business, other than that which the Tánaiste has just read out, to be done this week?

When is it proposed to consider the remaining stages of the County Management (Amendment) Bill, or has that been abandoned?

Until after the general election.

It has not been abandoned. It will not be taken before Easter.

That means that you will not be handling the Bill.

Prophecies are very dangerous at this stage.
