This item was flagged last week and the committee agreed to deal with it at this meeting. Members were invited to put forward nominations if they so wished. I have received one nomination. Senator Ward has proposed Deputy Carroll MacNeill as Vice Chairman and that has been seconded by Deputy Creed. I invite Senator Ward to put the proposal to the committee.

I nominate Deputy Carroll MacNeill as Vice Chairman. I do not need to address the proposal.

The Senator did so previously. There being no other nominations, I take it that the nomination of Deputy Carroll MacNeill is agreed to. Agreed. I offer my congratulations to Deputy Carroll MacNeill.

I look forward to working with her and other members of the committee. That was very businesslike and smooth.
