Election of Vice Chairman

I call for nominations for the position of Vice Chairman.

I would like to nominate Deputy Howlin for the position of Vice Chairman.

I second that nomination.

I thank Deputy Richmond for making the nomination and Deputy Calleary for seconding it. Are there other nominations?

I would like to nominate Deputy Ruairí Ó Murchú.

We have had two nominations for the position of Vice Chairman. We will record a voice vote for each nomination in the order in which they were made.

Question, "That Deputy Howlin be elected Vice Chairman of the committee", put and declared carried.

Comhghairdeas to Deputy Howlin. We will now go into private session.

The joint committee went into private session at 5.39 p.m. and adjourned at 6.05 p.m. until 9 a.m. on Wednesday, 7 October 2020.
