Vol. 452 No. 4

Request to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 30.

Before proceeding to the Order of Business proper I propose to deal with a notice of motion from Deputy Ned O'Keeffe. I now call on Deputy O'Keeffe to state the matter of which he has given notice to me.

In accordance with Standing Order 30 I wish to request leave to move the adjournment of the Dáil to discuss the need to upgrade Mallow Racecourse as I consider it to be a matter of urgent public importance. I would like to know the reason for the delay.

Having considered the matter fully I do not consider it to be one contemplated by our Standing Orders. Therefore, I cannot grant leave to move the motion. My office has advised the Deputy that this is essentially a matter for the Irish Horse Racing Authority.
