Staon

Tellers: Tá, Deputies Brendan Griffin and Jack Chambers; Níl, Deputies Mattie McGrath and Pádraig Mac Lochlainn.
Question declared carried.
Deputy Holly Cairns did not vote in this division due to an agreed pairing arrangement with Minister Helen McEntee for the duration of the Minister’s maternity leave.

For the record of the House, I was accused just before the votes of bringing the Business Committee into disrepute. I know I am of advancing years, as are some other Members, but I do not think my memory has failed me completely yet. I was happy, having checked with the officials, to find that there was no dissent and no objection registered this morning when this motion was taken as the first item of business at the Business Committee.

May I just clarify-----

No, thank you.

A Cheann Comhairle, I want to clarify something, please.

You need not bother.

I want to reference the Standing Order.

You need not bother, thank you.

I tell you what, a Cheann Comhairle, I will be emailing you now calling for an emergency meeting of the Business Committee.

I believe you are bringing us into disrepute and I have to tell you that my colleagues in the Opposition agree with me. We will have an emergency meeting of the Business Committee on the back of this to sort it out.

Thank you very much.
