Daily business papers

For every sitting day, the Seanad publishes an Order Paper setting out the business before the House. The Seanad may also publish a Supplementary Order Paper.

You can see all the items of business before the Dáil on the Dáil Business website. The Dáil publishes a daily Questions Paper, which contains the texts of all oral, priority and written questions for the day.

The Dáil Order Paper is available in digital format on the Dáil Business website. All items of business before Dáil Éireann are listed there. Order Papers published before 2022 (ie, those in PDF format) can be found in the Publications section of this website.

Dáil Éireann: Topical Issues

Topical issues provide TDs with the opportunity to raise issues of concern to them. To do this, they must give notice to the Ceann Comhairle of the issues they want to raise. The Ceann Comhairle then selects four issues for debate on a single day. In each case the TD concerned makes a four-minute initial statement and the Minister has a right to make a four-minute statement in reply. The TD then has two minutes for a supplementary statement and the Minister has two minutes for a concluding statement.

In each case, the Minister has the right to make a four-minute speech in reply.
