I thank the party leaders for allowing me to attend the meeting with Prime Minister Blair. However, I wish to mention one issue.
Liam Fitzgibbon, the Editor of Debates in Leinster House, is retiring today and I will not get an opportunity on the Order of Business to raise this. He has worked here for longer than I have been a Member. He has been in the House for more than three decades and he has been Editor of Debates since 1996. He is well known and highly respected by all Members and staff alike. I congratulate him on his more than 30 years service to the House in a difficult job and I wish him well in his retirement.
