Visit of Swiss Delegation
Before proceeding with the business of the House, I welcome the Swiss delegation to the Distinguished Visitors Gallery. The delegation will visit the Border region tomorrow and we might learn something from the delegates in that regard. While we have only one border, Switzerland has a border with four EU members states, namely, France, Germany, Italy and Austria. In particular, I welcome the Swiss ambassador and the friends with whom I served when I was chairman of the European Parliament's delegation for relations with Switzerland, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein. It is great to meet them again and I hope the rest of their visit will be very productive. Fáilte roimh go dtí Dáil Éireann agas bain sult sa treimhse anseo.
