Business of Seanad

In light of the voting block in the Dáil continuing, I propose that we suspend until that concludes. I apologise to Members of the House and to members of staff for the inconvenience. We thought we had an agreement that there would be an arrangement with regard to the voting block in the Dáil on a Thursday. Seemingly that has broken down, so we must, perhaps through the Committee on Procedure and Privileges, reconsider. I propose that we suspend until-----

We will resume as soon as possible.

We will resume as soon as the voting block in the Dáil is over.

Sitting suspended at 2.01 p.m. and resumed at 2.10 p.m.
