An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
I will not oppose the Order of Business, but not for the first time, questions to the Minister for Justice and Equality directly clash with a select committee meeting. While a Minister may send a Minister of State to one or the other, it creates a problem for the rest of us who have to either pose questions or vote in the select committee. I ask that in future the Whip's office and the Business Committee examine clashes between departmental questions and select Oireachtas committees. It is not the first time this has happened.
