I beg to move:—"That the Report be adopted." As this is the first Report of this kind, perhaps I ought to explain that under the Standing Orders relative to Private Business the Oireachtas reserves to itself the power to dispense with any Standing Orders, with or without conditions, if they think fit, and all such Petitions are referred to the Joint Committee on Standing Orders. In this case, practically all the Urban Districts had already petitioned against the Bills. That enables them to appear when the Bills are in Committee and state any objections they may have either to the Bills or parts of them. The Blackrock Council, through inadvertence, failed to have their Petition in in time. They accordingly petitioned the Committee, who decided, after hearing the case, as the Bills had been postponed until October, to recommend that both Houses should dispense with the Standing Order in so far as was necessary to enable them to lodge a petition. It is purely a formal matter.
