Voices In The House

 

Does the Minister agree that mindless, stupid remarks to seek to cause a diversion away from the issue before this House are not appropriate to this serious situation?

- Mr Emmet Stagg (Lab, Kildare North) on the resignation of the CIE chairman

In the circumstances I find the deputy's remarks to be mindless, stupid and remarkable.

- The Minister for Public Enterprise, Mrs O'Rourke

Can I ask the Minister was the dreadful pay and conditions of Dublin Bus workers discussed over lobster and white wine when she met the chairman?

- Mr Joe Higgins (Socialist, Dublin West)

I do not eat lobster or drink white wine. I drink red wine.

- The Minister for Public Enterprise, Mrs O'Rourke
