The first motion on the Orders of the Day is one down in the name of the Cathaoirleach as Chairman of the Standing Orders Committee, and it is on behalf of the Committee that the motion has been put down in his name. Probably the simplest way would be if I were formally to move the motion. The form in which it is put down is to enable the Standing Orders Committee to meet the Standing Orders Committee of the Dáil and to arrange so that as far as possible they might send a complete re-draft of the Standing Orders to the Seanad. Probably it will take another month before that can be completed. It may possibly take longer. I beg to move:—
"That the Provisional Standing Orders be continued in force until June 25th, 1923 or such earlier date as the Seanad may decide."
