I move:

That leave being given by the Dáil to introduce the following Supplementary Estimates for the service of the year ending on the 31st day of December, 2012:-

Vote 25 — Environment, Community and Local Government (Supplementary Estimate)

Vote 37 — Social Protection (Supplementary Estimate)

Vote 39 — Health Service Executive (Supplementary Estimate).

Is this the motion to refer the Supplementary Estimate for the Health Service Executive to the select sub-committee?

That is correct.

We object to this in the strongest possible manner. We believe this is sweeping ministerial incompetence under the committee room carpet. We oppose this motion.

This is the motion requesting leave to introduce.

We are opposing the motion on the grounds that we feel there should be a full debate in plenary session on this very important issue with regard to a Supplementary Estimate of €360 million in the Department of Health.

Question put: "That leave be given to introduce Supplementary Estimates for Votes 25, 37 and 39."

The Dáil divided: Tá, 87; Níl, 45.

Tellers: Tá, Deputies Emmet Stagg and Paul Kehoe; Níl, Deputies Aengus Ó Snodaigh and Seán Ó Fearghaíl.

Níl

Question declared carried.
