Business of Seanad.
A point of order has been raised by at least four of my colleagues. Standing Orders are absolutely clear on this matter. Where a point of order is raised, and there are now four Senators on their feet, the Chair must give way to the point of order.
I put a question to the Leader while she was in the Chamber and she stated that I would have the opportunity to speak on section 5. With the deepest respect, I challenge the ruling of the Leas-Chathaoirleach and his authority to put this question.
