EU-Korea Free Trade Agreement: Referral to Select Sub-Committee

I move:

That the proposal that Dáil Éireann approves the terms of the Free Trade Agreement between the European Union and its Member States, of the one part, and the Republic of Korea, of the other part, which was signed on 6th October, 2010, and laid before Dáil Éireann on 4th July, 2011, be referred to the Select sub-Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, in accordance with Standing Order 82A(3)(b) and (6)(a), which, not later than 21st July, 2011, shall send a message to the Dáil in the manner prescribed in Standing Order 87, and Standing Order 86(2) shall accordingly apply.

I remind Deputies that they are in the House of Parliament. When I am reading out motions, they should remain quiet.

On a point of order——

Would the Deputy mind resuming his seat? I called him twice and he did not respond.

You did not. I am disappointed.

He will get over it.

Excuse me, I did call you twice and then I called Deputy Mary Mitchell O'Connor because the Deputy would not respond.

I am disappointed, a Cheann Comhairle.

Excuse me, Deputy. The record of the House will show that I called you twice.

I had a question on promised legislation.

The record will show that I called you twice and you did not respond. I then called Deputy Mary Mitchell O'Connor.

He says Deputy Bannon is slow.

You were 15 years being slow.

Get back in your high chair.

Excuse me, Deputy.

I apologise again, a Cheann Comhairle.

I do not think it is very funny, to be honest with you.

It is not funny at all.

This is a Parliament so will you please behave in a parliamentary fashion?

Question put and agreed to.
