It is proposed to take business in the following order: Nos. 7 (all Stages), 8 (all Stages), 9 (all Stages) and 10. By agreement it is also proposed that, notwithstanding the resolution made on 15 December 1982, the sitting shall be suspended from 1.30 p.m. to 3 p.m. and business shall be interrupted accordingly. Questions shall be taken from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Private Members' Business will be No. 18.
I am grateful for the co-operation received from the Ceann Comhairle and the Opposition parties in allowing the change in business today in order to facilitate attendance by staff and Members of the Oireachtas at the interdenominational service of peace and reconciliation in Saint Anne's Church, Dawson Street at 2 p.m., organised by the women TDs and Senators of both Houses of the Oireachtas.
