Request to move Adjournment of Dáil under Standing Order 31.

Before coming to the Order of Business I propose to deal with a notice of motion under Standing Order 31 from Deputy Gormley. I call on Deputy Gormley to state the matter of which he has given notice to me.

I ask that the House allow time for debate on the issue of the pick-me-up mechanism that has been widely deployed to facilitate party political fund-raising and tax evasion.

Having considered the matter fully I do not consider it to be contemplated by Standing Order 31 and, therefore, I cannot grant leave to move the motion.
