Before I call the Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications, Deputy Ryan, we have a very distinguished visitor in the Visitors Gallery, H.E. Ms Nancy Smyth, the Canadian ambassador to Ireland. I am sure we all want to extend a very warm Céad Míle Fáilte to her. She is joined by her colleague from the embassy, Jackie Ellis, and by our colleague, Deputy Stanton, who is doing an outstanding job as Chairman of the Canada-Ireland Interparliamentary Friendship Group. I am hoping that via the ambassador's visit and the work of the friendship group that cultural, social, economic and political links will be strengthened in the period ahead.
