    Opposition leaders John Bruton and Dick Spring question the Taoiseach regarding any decision he may make about his resignation. Bruton asks that the work of the house not be interrupted for too long.

    Haughey in replying assures the house that there will not be a repeat of Bruton's 1982 budget where a general election had to be called.
