I thank my colleague, Senator Malcolm Byrne, for the support. I am a little confused. As you outlined, a Chathaoirligh, I was referring to the leniency of the particular cases. I did not refer to a specific case, but said it in general. It is an issue in Galway city and county, as you are aware, but it is also an issue across the country. I am still not clear about why I was not allowed to make the full contribution. In what way was it not right or appropriate to discuss it in the House, as Senator Malcolm Byrne mentioned? There is separation from the Judiciary, and that is fine. Naturally, we cannot get into individual specific cases. We accept that, but that is not what I was saying. With respect, I seek clarification from you, a Chathaoirligh, or from the Clerk of the Seanad.
