Business of Seanad
I said on the Order of Business that I would review progress and in that regard I am proposing an amendment to the Order of Business that on completion of Committee Stage, given the possibility of amendments being tabled on Report Stage, the House will suspend for 30 minutes to allow matters to proceed in an orderly manner.
On a point of order, is the Leader proposing that Report Stage be taken after the 30 minute sos? My understanding is that the Bills Office will not be in a position to republish the Bill as amended. Perhaps the Leader will clarify that matter. Is the Leader suggesting a half hour break following which it is proposed to take Report Stage?
