Outcome of Referendum on UK Membership of European Union: Motion

I move:

That Seanad Éireann holds a comprehensive debate over a number of days on the results of the UK Referendum on EU membership and its implications for the island of Ireland: as part of this debate, Seanad Éireann would invite a range of persons to appear before it, including:

- the Taoiseach and relevant Ministers;

- Irish and Northern Ireland MEPs;

- the First Minister and the Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland;

- any other person deemed relevant to the debate.

I know that it is a little unorthodox, but I would like to be associated with what the Chair has said.

There is to be no debate on the motion.

I second the proposal.

I hope the Brexit debate will begin on the second sitting day after the summer recess.

Question put and agreed to.
