Order of Business
Maurice Cummins (Fine Gael)
The matter raised by Senator Keane regarding a north Kildare school could be the subject of an excellent Adjournment debate and she could obtain the information she requires from the Minister for Education and Skills.
Senator Crown raised the issue of donations by big business to political parties. Major restrictions in this regard are provided for in the Bill that was before the House yesterday. The Government is addressing the problem and significantly curtailing such donations in future. We will not have recurrence of what we witnessed in recent years, which was most regrettable.
