Committee on Public Petitions
Election of Vice Chairman
I thank my proposer and seconder. I also thank the committee for its support. In his absence, I commiserate with Senator Craughwell because it has probably been the longest running election in the history of the House but it has been fought in a good spirit. I thank Senator Craughwell for his time and contribution to date.
I wish you all the best and congratulate you on your election as Vice Chairman. I look forward to working with you. We have had a good relationship since the committee started and I hope both you, I and the other committee members can continue that.
I apologise as I could not get into the meeting for some reason. I had to leave and enter the meeting again. I congratulate Deputy Devlin, who has a bit more weight on his shoulders now. I am sure he is well able to carry it. Well done.
