Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs
Election of Vice Chairman
I nominate Senator Leyden. He is a former Minister of State and a long-standing Member of the Oireachtas who has served in both the Dáil and Seanad. He has huge experience in European affairs. I also think it is a good idea to have a Senator as Vice Chairman for balance. I know that Senator Leyden would be a very suitable candidate for the position.
