Business of Dáil: Motion.

The next business is the arrangements for the nomination of Taoiseach. I call the Minister of State at the Department of the Taoiseach, Deputy Tom Kitt.

I move:

That, notwithstanding anything in Standing Orders, (i) the proceedings on the nomination of the Taoiseach shall be brought to a conclusion at 3.30 p.m.; and the House shall suspend immediately thereafter until 6 p.m.; and (ii) all divisions demanded in the House today and tomorrow shall be taken manually; and Private Members' Business shall take place tomorrow, immediately after the Order of Business and shall be brought to a conclusion after 3 hours, if not previously concluded.

Question put and agreed to.
