Seanad Éireann debate -
Thursday, 30 Jul 1970

Vol. 68 No. 17

Order of Business.

It is proposed to take Nos. 1, 2, 3, 6, 4 and 5 on the Order Paper.

Does the Leader of the House still intend that we do not discuss Nos. 7 to 15 on the Order Paper before the recess?

If we finish the business that is ordered by 7 o'clock we shall see what we can do.

Is it possible to get through all this business today? For how long is it intended to sit? There are many important items to be discussed and I do not think we should be inhibited from discussing them fully by being told that we shall sit on until 2 or 3 in the morning.

There are not such an enormous number of items on the Order Paper. It should be possible to get through all Stages of all the Bills today with a little co-operation. It is my hope that we will be able to finish the business. I have found a concensus of opinion in the Seanad that we should rise for the recess tonight the same as the Dáil.
