Vol. 284 No. 1

Election of Acting Chairperson

Clerk of 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 Standing Orders for the period of absence of both. I will now take proposals for Acting Chairperson.

I propose Senator Ned O'Sullivan.

I second the proposal.

Clerk of the Seanad

Is it agreed that Senator Ned O'Sullivan be elected Acting Chairperson? Agreed.

Senator Ned O'Sullivan took the Chair.

I thank Members for elevating me for the day.
