Gnó an tSeanaid - Business of Seanad

To clarify for the Minister, a wide-ranging debate was what had been scheduled. There was a breakdown in communication somewhere. To be fair to the Minister, we will work on that. I thank him.

I move:

That, notwithstanding the order of the House today, No. 1a on the Supplementary Order Paper, statements on the need for a public inquiry into the death of Mr. Shane O’Farrell, be taken at 4 p.m., to conclude no later than 5.30 p.m. with the contribution of group spokespersons not to exceed eight minutes, those of all other Senators not to exceed five minutes, and the Minister to be given not less than six minutes to reply to the debate; and No. 3, Private Member's Business, Criminal Justice (Rehabilitative Periods) Bill 2018 - Committee Stage, be taken on the conclusion of No. 1a, to adjourn after two hours, if not previously concluded.

Question put and agreed to.
