EXTENDED SITTING.

I beg leave to move that the Dáil sit until 10.30 p.m., after the conclusion of Private Business this evening, for the purpose of considering the Local Government Bill.

Will the Minister agree to an adjournment for tea, say, for three-quarters of an hour, at 6.30?

From 6.30 to 7 o'clock would suit.

Will the Private Members' business come on at 7 o' clock?

It will be on at 7 o' clock.

Question put and agreed to.
