Sittings of Seanad: Motion
The motion provides for the House to sit on Monday and Tuesday next week. We had intended to sit on Wednesday but with the co-operation of all involved, I hope we can do our business on Monday and Tuesday and complete our business by Tuesday.
That, notwithstanding anything in the Standing Orders relative to Public Business:1) the Seanad shall meet at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, 20th July, 2015;
2) the Seanad shall meet at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, 21st July, 2015; and
3) at the sittings of the Seanad on the 21st and 22nd July, 2015:(i) Standing Order 29 shall stand suspended; and
(ii) the Order of Business shall be proposed at the commencement of public business.”
As fewer than five Members have risen I declare the question carried. In accordance with Standing Order 61 the names of the Senators dissenting will be recorded in the Journal of the Proceedings of the Seanad.
