PUBLIC BUSINESS. - THE ADJOURNMENT.

AN CATHAOIRLEACH

A Message will accompany that accordingly. That concludes our business for to-day. We have no business for to-morrow except the formality that would ensue by putting the Private Bill that was objected to to-day down for to-morrow. I do not like to ask the Seanad to come here to-morrow for that, and at the same time I do not want any unreasonable delay placed in the way of the promoters of this Bill. Accordingly, although we have only one Bill for next week, I think we ought to sit on Wednesday next. Then the Bill blocked to-day will appear again on the Order Paper of that day for its Second Reading. There will also appear the Committee Stage of the Old Age Pensions Bill.

If these Private Bills are blocked a second time they will have to come forward a third time?

AN CATHAOIRLEACH

They will come forward on a date to be fixed by me.

Is not that to be taken very shortly after the time the Bill is blocked secondly?

AN CATHAOIRLEACH

That is a matter for the Chairman. As at present advised, I think I could direct it to be taken forthwith.

The Seanad rose at 6.20 p.m. until Wednesday, 7th May.
