Announcement of Business

Before I call the Taoiseach and proceed with the business of the House, I have some announcements to make. For the information of the House, I received a letter of resignation from Deputy Seán Ardagh on Friday 28 January 2011, as a Member of Dáil Éireann for the constituency of Dublin South Central. In accordance with the provisions of Standing Order 169 the resignation took effect from that date.
