Seanad Éireann díospóireacht -
Wednesday, 18 Mar 1925

Vol. 4 No. 16


Before we proceed with the business, I would like to say that the House would be much convenienced if we could be given some indication as to whether the Seanad will meet to-morrow.


I think it would be desirable to sit to-morrow as one or two of these Bills are urgent— certainly one of them is urgent. The Government are anxious to get it through. Then there is the Report Stage to-day of the Police Forces Amalgamation Bill, 1924, and if that Report goes through to-day it might be convenient to dispose of the Bill in the Fifth Stage and pass it to-morrow, but the reason which I suggest will influence the Seanad in sitting to-morrow, even though they may have to sit only for a short time, is that I shall not find it necessary to convene them again until after Easter. Therefore, it is desirable that we should be in a position to-morrow to say that no meeting will be convened until after Easter. We can accomplish that by sitting to-morrow. We can make that quite certain at the conclusion of to-day's business.
