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.
Request to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 31.
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.
