Clerk to the Committee:
Apologies have been received from Deputy Seán Canney. The first item of business is the election of a Chairman and I now invite nominations for the position.

Is anyone keen on this job? There are also apologies from Deputy Ó Broin as he is in the Chamber now.
We can record that.
With the possibility of a new Government next week, are we really going through the motions?
We need to elect a Chairman before we can proceed to do any business today.

I nominate Deputy Sean Fleming.
As there is more than one nomination for the position of Chairman, I will deal with each nomination in the order received.
Question, "That Deputy Colm Brophy be elected Chairman of the committee", put and declared carried.
Deputy Colm Brophy took the Chair.
