Vol. 283 No. 12

Election of Acting Chairman

Clerk to the Seanad

I have to inform the House pursuant to Standing Order 12 that both the Cathaoirleach and Leas-Chathaoirleach are absent from this meeting of the Seanad. It will be necessary, therefore, to elect a Member to perform the duties devolving upon and exercise the authority conferred upon the Cathaoirleach by the Standing Orders for the period of the absence of both.

I will take proposals for Acting Chairperson.

I propose Senator Horkan.

I second the proposal.

Clerk to the Seanad

Is it agreed that Senator Horkan be elected Acting Chairperson? Agreed. I call Senator Horkan to take the Chair.

Senator Gerry Horkan took the Chair.
