Joint Oireachtas Committee on European Union Affairs
Election of Vice Chairman
The first item on the agenda is the election of the Vice Chairman. This position has become vacant following the promotion of Deputy Paschal Donohoe to the post of Minister of State with responsibility for European affairs. I seek nominations for the position.
I congratulate Deputy Murphy. It is an important office as it is second only to the Chairman. It is also important that we encourage people to become immersed in European affairs, particularly for the future.
