I thank Members for their understanding regarding the obligation to extend the Order of Business. The leader of the Opposition has left the Chamber to check some files. I wanted to get through Second Stage this evening with Members' permission and co-operation. I am grateful for Members' co-operation in making this happen and in getting the House to its present position. I also thank the Minister for Heath and Children, Deputy Harney, who was available to appear before the House at 5 p.m. I understand she will return shortly. Although it is almost 5.30 p.m., if it is in order and with the permission of the Leas-Chathaoirleach, Members can continue immediately.

Is that agreed? Agreed.
