An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Jerry Buttimer (Fine Gael)
The first week back we cannot have it because the Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and the junior Ministers in the Department will travel to the UN in New York. We will have that debate the second week we are back.
I remind Senator Leyden that the Fine Gael Ministers have been strong in attending Council meetings and have been working hard to rebuild and enhance Ireland's position across Europe with member states. As Senator Feighan said, we are not negotiating on our own, it is the EU that is negotiating and we all have worn the green jersey. It is the last day and I will not get into a fight.
