Vol. 286 No. 4

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 take proposals for Acting Chairperson.

I propose Senator Gerry Horkan.

I second the proposal.

Clerk of the Seanad

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

Senator Gerry Horkan took the Chair.
