I will move a motion at the end of the Order of Business to pass an expression of sympathy on behalf of the House on the death of former Deputy and Senator John O'Mahony. I concur with the Cathaoirleach on John in that he was a lovely man, a real gentleman. It was very sad to hear of his passing. I express condolences to his wife Gerardine, his five children, all the family, his community and his Fine Gael colleagues. He was a fantastic Mayo football manager and a representative for County Mayo. He was a very kind and warm person, and I am very sad to hear about his passing. We think of his family, community and friends at this really sad time.

The Order of Business is No. 1, motion regarding the orders of reference of the Seanad Select Committee on Scrutiny of Draft EU-related Statutory Instruments, to be taken on the conclusion of the Order of Business without debate; No. 2, motion regarding the appointment of An tOmbudsman Póilíneachta, to be taken on the conclusion of No. 1 without debate; No. 3, motion regarding the reappointment of a member to the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission, to be taken on the conclusion of No. 2 without debate; No. 4, Defence (Amendment) Bill 2024 [Dáil] – Report and Final Stages, to be taken at 3.25 p.m. and with the proceedings thereon, if not previously concluded, to be brought to a conclusion at 4.45 p.m. by the putting of one question from the Chair, which shall, in relation to amendments, include only those set down or accepted by the Government; No. 5, Social Welfare (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2024 [Dáil] – Committee and Remaining Stages, to be taken at 5.15 p.m. and whose proceedings shall, if not previously concluded, be brought to a conclusion at 6.15 p.m. by the putting of one question from the Chair, which shall, in relation to amendments, include only those set down or accepted by the Government; and No. 6, the Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill 2024 [Dáil] – Committee and Remaining Stages, to be taken at 6.30 p.m.

I welcome Councillor Noel Heavey and his wife Bernie to the Chamber.
