I cannot hear the Ceann Comhairle clearly as the acoustics do not carry to this part of the House.

As yet we have not seen a set of Government amendments, although we have our own amendments. I am not sure whether other parties have tabled amendments. Does the Ceann Comhairle wish to call a short recess so we can get the amendments and read them? It is important that we are given a chance to see what is proposed. This is important stuff, not casual stuff, as is often the case with amendments. We need a chance to see the amendments.
