These are amendments inserted in the Bill at the instance of the Seanad.
Animal Remedies Bill, 1956—from the Seanad.
I think it is desirable to establish—indeed it was a practice—that when amendments come from the Seanad to the Dáil a day is fixed for taking them. I think we are drifting into wrong practices.
There is no urgency about this matter. If it inconveniences the Opposition in any way we can fix a date for them.
What is often done as a matter of courtesy to the Government is becoming an accepted practice. There can be occasions when these amendments require consideration.
I do not care a fiddle-de-dee. All I want to do is to prevent the sale of fraudulent remedies and the sooner I get that done the better.
That remark is typical of the Minister.
Let us fix a day.
I suggest to-day.
The practice should be that the Government announces its attitude to the amendments and then a day is fixed. I suggest next Wednesday.
