Business of Seanad

I seek the suspension of the sitting because the Minister of State, Deputy Cuffe, is needed for a vote in the other House and there is no pairing arrangement.

Is it agreed the House will suspend until 12.50 p.m.? Agreed.

Sitting suspended at 12.35 p.m. and resumed at 12.50 p.m.

As a result of a vote in the Dáil, I propose that we suspend the sitting until 1.30 p.m.

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Sitting suspended at 12.55 p.m. and resumed at 1.30 p.m.
