Order of Business.
Fergal Browne (Fine Gael)
I wish to be associated with the good wishes extended to the staff of the Houses and in particular to Mr. Paddy Behan who is retiring. I thank him for the courtesy he extended to me in my short time here, especially in arranging visits by school groups etc. He was always calm especially when I brought in a group on very busy day. That was much appreciated. I wish him and his family every success on his retirement.
I also have some concerns in regard to the so-called Colombia three. That their whereabouts are not even known yet is a cause of grave concern. It is important that justice is seen to be done correctly. Perhaps it would be opportune for all concerned to have a debate on this issue in January.
