Vol. 337 No. 11

Oireachtas Library Joint Committee: Motion.

I move:

That a Select Committee consisting of seven members be appointed to be joined with a Select Committee to be appointed by Seanad Éireann to assist and advise the Ceann Comhairle and the Cathaoirleach in the direction and control of the Oireachtas Library;

That the Joint Committee, previous to the commencement of business, shall elect one of its members to be Chairman, who shall have only one vote;

That all questions in the Joint Committee shall be determined by a majority of votes of the members present and voting and in the event of there being an equality of votes the question shall be decided in the negative; and

That four members of the Joint Committee shall form a quorum of whom two shall be members of Dáil Éireann and two shall be members of Seanad Éireann.

The Library now administer a research service, and we should consider at some time changing the title of the committee to include a reference to that research service.

Question put and agreed to.
