Before coming to the Order of Business, I propose to deal with a number of topics under Standing Order 31 dealing with five different issues. I propose to deal with them separately and I will call on the Deputies in the order in which they submitted their notices to my office.
In regard to the first topic, I have received notice from Deputy Gogarty and I call on him to state the matter.
As Deputy Gogarty is not in the House we will move on to the second topic. I have received notice from Deputy Michael D. Higgins and I call on him to state the matter.
