I move:

That Dáil Éireann approves the terms of the Tampere Convention on the Provision of Telecommunications Resources for Disaster Mitigation and Relief Operations as adopted on 18 June 1998 in Tampere, Finland, copies of which were laid before Dáil Éireann on 28 October 2005, subject to the following reservation:

to the extent to which certain provisions of the Tampere Convention on the Provision of Telecommunications Resources for Disaster Mitigation and Relief Operations fall within the area of responsibility of the European Community, the full implementation of the Convention by Ireland has to be done in accordance with the procedures of this international organisation.

Question put and agreed to.
