Can the Taoiseach tell us which Estimate is to be taken after the Estimate for Social Welfare?

That has not been decided yet but we will let the Deputy know as soon as possible, perhaps today.

Will the Taoiseach be in a position to give us any information this afternoon on the future of the 19th Dáil?

Yes, if the Deputy wishes to ask me a question, but we are sitting next week, if that is what is worrying the Deputy and I will be in a position to give the programme up to Christmas.

They are being very facetious this morning.

Will the Order be the same for next Thursday?

They might be a little more generous with Private Members' Time.

Do not be so "Thornley".

No crisis, no problems.
