Before I announce the Order of Business I wish to mention a couple of other matters. I know that the House wants an opportunity to discuss Aer Lingus and the Whips will meet after the Order of Business today to arrange a suitable time for a debate on the matter. This House had an extensive debate on Aer Lingus in late October and would obviously like to afford itself an opportunity to discuss current developments there.
The Criminal Justice Bill which is being dealt with in the Dáil at present will be introduced to this House on 24 March.
I want to thank Senators O'Sullivan and Magner, the Leader of the Labour Party, Deputy Spring and other colleagues for making it possible to take statements on Northern Ireland on 25 March and I will have further details of times etc., later. I also wish to thank the Minister concerned for the fact that the Unfair Dismissals Amendment Bill is to be initiated in this House today, the first I hope, of many Bills to be initiated here. On the Order of Business today it is proposed to take Item 5 from 2.30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Second Stage and Item 11 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
