Business of Dáil

I have to bring to the attention of the House that we are 20 minutes late starting. I understand it is no reflection on the Minister, but we were due to start at 1.55 p.m. I also apologise to those who are viewing on Oireachtas TV.

I offer my apologies to you, a Leas-Cheann Comhairle, to the staff and to Deputies O'Callaghan, Quinlivan and Mattie McGrath. I mistook the time; I thought it was 2.15 p.m. I apologise and I appreciate your understanding.

It is well accepted.
