Business of Dáil.

I understand from the staff of the House they would like a small break of 15 minutes or 20 minutes so that they may get themselves organised for Report Stage. If the House agrees, I suggest that we reconvene at 2 p.m.

I am thinking perhaps of a trip to the restaurant in the meantime — say 2 p.m.

Perhaps, the Whips might also meet in the meantime so that we do not have a repeat of last night's performance——

We have only two and a quarter hours left.

I do not mind. Shall we say 1.45 p.m.

The ascetic Gandhis over on our right do not need so much to eat.

Having regard to that remark, Deputy O'Malley will probably agree to 2 p.m.

Not eating too much keeps the brain clear.

Is the time of 1.45 p.m. agreed?

I think 2 p.m.

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Sitting suspended at 1.15 p.m. and resumed at 2 p.m.
