Vol. 257 No. 7

Order of Business.

It is proposed to take business in the following order: No. 22 (Votes 37, 43, 44), Nos. 3 and 4; Nos. 3 and 4 to be taken in conjunction with Vote 37.

On the Order of Business, I asked yesterday if you would allow me to make a statement this morning in order that I might put on the record——

This does not arise on the Order of Business. I cannot allow the Deputy to make any statement at this stage.

Why not? I have been challenged by the Minister and by two others yesterday.

The matter may not be discussed. I must ask the Deputy to resume his seat.

I shall obey your wishes this time because I want to remain in the House but I will get another opportunity and as soon as possible I will put what I want to say on the record of the House.

Do not talk about order after what happened last night in the country. There is none.
