Requests to move Adjournment of Dáil Under Standing Order 32
I seek the adjournment of the Dáil under Standing Order 32 to raise a matter of national importance, namely, the IFA are rightly highlighting the wrong being done to the farmers of Ireland at present. Let us compare what they get paid for their produce to the price the consumer pays for it over the counter. The multinational food companies have a good deal to answer for. Everyone knows that from farm to gate is the most expensive part of food production and from gate to plate is the most profitable part. This is not right.
