I move:

That, notwithstanding the Order of the Dáil of 7th May, 2020, and until further notice in the 33rd Dáil, on or after 27th May, 2020, the number of Questions under Standing Order 50(2) for answer by the Minister for Health which may be received by the Clerk of the Dáil from a member shall not exceed six in any one week.

Question put and agreed to.

In agreeing to the motion, we are effectively doubling the number of parliamentary questions that can be tabled by a Member to the Department of Health from three to six.
