Appropriation Bill 2006: Committee and Remaining Stages
I wish the Minister of State, his officials, all Senators and the officials from the Houses the very best for Christmas. I do not know whether I would wish the Minister of State and those on the other side of the House unbridled success in 2007. However, I hope they have some success at least and that those on this side of the House have more success. I sincerely wish everybody all the best for the holiday season.
I thank all the Senators in the expedition through the House of the Bill, which is an important piece of housekeeping. I extend my best wishes for Christmas and the new year to all and sundry. I know Senator Phelan said he would reserve fire until the new year. I wish him and his county the very best in the hurling next year.
