This is Dáil Éireann. The Dáil is scheduled to sit until 11.30 p.m this evening. There is no reason this material cannot be given to Deputies before close of business this evening. It is a matter of basic respect for the House, the Parliament and the institutions of our parliamentary democracy. That is what it is about. The Taoiseach should stop treating people in here with disrespect. The Dáil has been consistently fair to the Government on Brexit and deserves a bit of reciprocal respect in terms of very basic matters pertaining to Brexit. It cannot always be about the Government wanting to control the message.
