Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (11 Dec 2019)

Gerard Craughwell: The Leader circulates precisely what he intends to say in the House to group leaders and Whips before he comes in here for the Order of Business. It is clear that his computer must not have been up to scratch this morning. He may have been trying to ambush us, although I would not expect him to act in an underhand manner. Last week, I spent three days with the Not Forgotten Association,...

Seanad: Judicial Appointments Commission Bill 2017: Report Stage (Resumed) and Final Stage (11 Dec 2019)

Gerard Craughwell: I note the Minister's impeccable mathematics. This morning, the Leader tried to tell us that 109 hours have been spent discussing the Bill when, in fact, at least 125 hours have been spent on it and probably more. I have been accused by many Members of the House of being a lackey to my colleague, Senator McDowell. I took my own legal advice on the Bill and on Second Stage I stated that it...
