As I wrote about earlier, there are conditions placed on the broadcasting of proceedings of the Oireachtas by Standing Order, including that extracts shall not be used for political satire.
The relevant Standing Order is SO 110. I quote it below. I’ll have one more post later this week, giving my response to this apparent bar to use.
110. That the broadcasting on sound and vision of the proceedings of the
Dail and its Committees by national, local and foreign broadcasters shall be
authorised subject to the following conditions:
(a) that recordings or extracts of the proceedings shall not be used in
programmes of light entertainment, political satire, party political
broadcasts or in any form of advertising or publicity, other than in
the form of news and current affairs programme trailers;
(b) that broadcasters shall ensure political balance in the material they use;
(c) that, subject to the approval of the Joint Committee on Broadcasting and Parliamentary Information or a sub-Committee thereof, broadcasters may be permitted to carry live coverage of any item of business subject to the following provisos:
(i) that such item shall not be interrupted by commentary, analysis or commercial breaks, and
(ii) that such item may not be re-broadcast in whole or in part except as permitted in and subject to the terms of this Standing Order;
(d) that copyright of all audio and televised material shall be vested in the Ceann Comhairle on behalf of Dail Eireann and its Committees.
