Business of Seanad: Motion
I am speaking on behalf of Fianna Fáil and Senators Wilson and Davitt. This occasion arrived a little more quickly than some Members might have expected last December when it was proposed that the House would sit again today. I happened to be in the Chair at the time. Some of us might have hoped to reach April or May, but it is what it is. Some 23 Members of this House are running for election to the Lower House and many of the other Members, myself included, will be running for election to this House. My message to everybody present is that they try not to forget me somewhere on the ballot paper before they are finished.
