Ceisteanna - Questions

Our questions are to an tAire Gnóthaí Fostaíochta agus Coimirce Sóisialaí, Deputy Regina Doherty. The usual procedure is that there are 30 seconds to introduce a question. The Minister has two minutes to respond, Deputies have one minute to ask a supplementary question and the Minister has one minute to reply. Then there is a final supplementary question and reply. I ask Members to adhere strictly to time schedules and not run over on the basis that we try to accommodate as many Deputies as possible with questions and answers.
