Ministerial Appointment: Announcement by Taoiseach

I call the Taoiseach to make an announcement for the information of the House.

It is about musical chairs.

I wish to announce for the information of the Dáil that the Government, on my nomination today, appointed Deputy Alex White to be Minister of State at the Department of Health with special responsibility for primary care.

Deputies

Hear, hear.

Has he got the criteria?

A Cheann Comhairle, is there a debate on this?
