I ask the Dáil for permission to sit late this evening, say to 9.30.

Is it the intention to have an adjournment for tea?

Yes, but only 30 minutes. I offered 45 minutes last evening and 60 were taken.

Ordered that the Dáil sit later than 8.30 p.m., the adjournment to be taken not later than 9.30 p.m.
