Business of Dáil

I call the Government Chief Whip, Deputy Regina Doherty.

I propose that the sitting now be suspended until 7.30 p.m.

I just do what I am told.

That is not a reason.

The Government Chief Whip is proposing that the House suspends until 7.30 p.m. Is that agreed? Agreed.

Sitting suspended at 6.35 p.m. and resumed at 7.30 p.m.

I understand the Government Chief Whip has a further business proposal to make.

Apologies. With the agreement of the House, I propose a further 15 minute recess.

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Sitting suspended at 7.35 p.m. and resumed at 7.50 p.m.
