Ruairí Quinn

Question:

37 Mr. Quinn asked the Taoiseach the proposals the Government is considering in regard to Dáil reform; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [14390/02]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 36 and 37 together.

In the latter stages of the last Dáil, a package of Dáil Reform measures was agreed in principle between the whips of the main parties. This package will need to be reconsidered in the coming months by the Dáil reform committee when appointed.

Question No. 38 resubmitted.
