Orders of Reference of the Committee on Key Issues affecting the Traveller Community: Motion

I move:

That the Orders of Reference of the Committee on Key Issues affecting the Traveller Community, as agreed by Order of the Seanad of 25th September, 2020, be amended by the substitution of the following paragraph for paragraph 7:

‘7. the Joint Committee shall make its final report to both Houses of the Oireachtas by 30th July, 2021, and shall thereupon stand dissolved.’

Question put and agreed to.

I thank all members for their co-operation on the Order of Business. Although it is not a function of the Chair to normally do this, as a person from the Border region, I wish to endorse the words of Senator McDowell and the Leader regarding Arlene Foster.

Sitting suspended at 2.48 p.m. and resumed at 3.17 p.m.
