European Parliament Elections (Amendment) Bill 2013 [Seanad]: Second Stage (Resumed) and Subsequent Stages

Question again proposed: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time."
Question put and agreed to.
Bill reported without amendment and received for final consideration.
Question proposed: "That the Bill do now pass."

Does the Ceann Comhairle know where the Opposition is?

That is a political matter and is not of concern to the Chair.

It is important to point out that no members of the Opposition are present, be they Fianna Fáil, Sinn Féin or Independent.

They have abandoned the Dáil.

Excuse me. The Dáil is in session.

On a point of order-----

There is no point of order on this sort of issue.

I accept the Ceann Comhairle's ruling.

There should be, though.

Question put and agreed to.

A message will be sent to the Seanad acquainting it accordingly.
