I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to discuss the following matter of urgent national importance, namely, the decision by the Argos chain to fly in English scab labour, or scab labour from anywhere, to work in its stores in Ireland when its employees are striking for an extra €1 per hour, and to call on the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment to draw up legislation forbidding foreign companies, or indeed Irish companies, from engaging in this kind of underhand, despicable tactic against workers, which is a throwback to the 1913 lockout, and thereby refusing to deal with labour issues in an Irish setting through the Labour Court and other mediation routes.
