Suspension of Member

I move: "That Deputy Michael McNamara be suspended from the service of the Dáil."

The Deputy is leaving the House.

I thought he would not leave until it was resolved. We will support Deputy McNamara. We will vote to keep him in.

I am afraid he is being named anyway, so I will put the question and it is up to the House to decide whether he be named or not.
