SEANAD IN COMMITTEE. - THE SEANAD RESUMES.

AN CATHAOIRLEACH

Is there any great urgency about this Bill?

Mr. O'HIGGINS

I think I would be straining my conscience by saying there is urgency about it. Administrative action has been taken in anticipation of the Bill, and by that course a substantial economy has been effected. I would hesitate to ask the Seanad to strain or outrage their Standing Orders in order to take the remaining stages of the Bill before the Easter Recess.

AN CATHAOIRLEACH

In view of the phraseology of our Standing Orders I am glad you do not wish it to be passed through its remaining Stages now.
