Gnó na Dála - Business of Dáil

The Chief Whip has a proposal.

It is proposed, notwithstanding anything in Standing Orders, that No. 6b, motion re sittings and business, be taken now without debate and that any division claimed thereon be taken immediately.

Is it agreed that the motion be taken without debate?

It is not. This is the motion on Thursday's sitting. Could the Leas-Cheann Comhairle clarify whether we are taking Thursday and Friday together? Are they separate?

Together. The question is on whether the motion should be taken without debate. Is that agreed?
