Seanad Éireann - Volume 131 - 25 March, 1992

Request Under Standing Order 29.

An Cathaoirleach: I have notice from Senator Raftery regarding a motion which he wishes to move under Standing Order 29. I call on Senator Raftery to give notice of the motion before I give my ruling. All that is required is that the Senator give notice of his motion for the Adjournment and he should not elaborate or make a speech.

Professor Raftery: Under Standing Order 29 I wish to move a motion for the Adjournment of the Seanad on a specific and important matter of public interest requiring urgent consideration, the matter being that Seanad Éireann debate the Britanny ferry mishap and its serious implications.

An Cathaoirleach: I have given serious consideration to this matter. I cannot consider it to be a matter contemplated by Standing Order 29 and, therefore, rule it out of order.
