Electoral (Amendment) Bill 2011: Motion for Earlier Signature

I move:

That pursuant to subsection 2° of section 2 of Article 25 of the Constitution, Seanad Éireann concurs with the Government in a request to the Commission constituted as provided in section 2 of Article 14 of the Constitution to sign the Electoral (Amendment) Bill 2011 on a date which is earlier than the fifth day after the date on which the Bill shall have been presented to it.

Question put and declared carried.

When is it proposed to sit again?

It is proposed to sit again at 10.30 a.m. next Tuesday. I have managed to arrange a debate on the Cloyne report next week, as requested by Members this morning. The only disadvantage is that the debate on the arts may have to be deferred as a result. We must await news on the availability of Ministers.
