Ceisteanna—Questions. Priority Questions.

Mr. Power: On a point of order, would it be appropriate to suspend the sitting for ten minutes at 3.15 p.m. so that Members might watch the Cheltenham Gold Cup on television?

An Ceann Comhairle: I wish I could facilitate the Deputy but it is not within my power or authority to do so. Doubtless he will receive news about the race shortly and I hope he backed the winner

Mr. Power: With three fancied runners in the race, I thought it might be appropriate.
