The schedule for the day was seriously disrupted this afternoon after three members of the Technical Group were thrown out of the chamber in a row over speaking rights. It is understood that discussions were held up for almost two hours amid as the Ceann Comhairle, Sean Barrett, suspended the Dáil three times, with votes also required to remove Catherine Murphy, John Halligan and Thomas Pringle.
