Vol. 112 No. 9

Business of Seanad.

When we were determining the Order of Business today it was thought at that time that Senator Deenihan would be raising a matter on the Adjournment. I understand that it will not be raised on this particular sitting day. Therefore it is open to the House to decide what the time of adjournment should be. I am in the hands of the House. Senator McGonagle is in possession, Senator Howlin is waiting to speak and if it is their wish that the House should decide to sit until 8.30 p.m. or decide to sit beyond 8 o'clock but call no speaker later than 8 o'clock or 8.30 p.m. this might help us to have the Second Stage of this Bill despatched before we take up the heavy work of the Finance Bill and the Constitutional Amendment Bill.

May I suggest to the Leader of the House that if the person in possession exceeds the 8 o'clock limit he or she be allowed to conclude, assuming that it will not go beyond 8.30 p.m.
