WITHDRAWAL OF PRESS.

Mr. Chairman and Senators, before the business of this afternoon commences I should respectfully like to suggest that the correspondents of the Press withdraw for a quarter of an hour or twenty minutes in order that we may have a little private discussion in relation to the names of candidates who are to be submitted for the Chair.

I beg to second that motion.

Motion made and question put:
"That the correspondents of the Press withdraw from the Seanad."
Motion declared carried by 26 to 12 on a show of hands.
The representatives of the Press withdrew.
