Request to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 31.

Before coming to the Order of Business, I propose to deal with a notice of motion under Standing Order 31 from Deputy Sargent. I now call on Deputy Sargent to state the matter of which he has given notice to me.

Pursuant to the terms of Standing Order 31, I request leave to move a motion to adjourn the House to allow the Government to respond to reports that the Tribunal of Inquiry into Planning Irregularities may be stymied by legal challenges and to give a commitment that it will bring forward the necessary legislation to prevent the tribunal being hampered.

Having fully considered the matter, I do not consider it to be contemplated by Standing Order 31 and, therefore, I cannot grant leave to move the motion.
