Before I call Senator Ruane, the Leader wishes to announce a change to the business.
Business of Seanad
I propose an amendment to the Order of Business that, notwithstanding anything in today's order in regard to No. 3, statements on Palestine, the contributions of all Senators are not to exceed eight minutes, the Minister is to be given no less than six minutes to reply to the debate and time may be shared.
Is that agreed? Agreed.
