I remind Members that this is the last sitting in this Chamber for approximately 18 months, after which I hope we will all be back here.

Before I call on the Leader to announce the Order of Business, I wish to make the following announcement for the information of the House on the appointment of the members of the Joint Committee on the Future of Mental Health Care. On 18 July the Seanad agreed to appoint a special committee to be joined with a special committee to be appointed by Dáil Éireann to form the Joint Committee on the Future of Mental Health Care. The decision of the House requires me to announce the names of the Members appointed to be members of the committee on the first sitting day following their appointment. Accordingly, I announce the names of the Members appointed as follows: Senators Máire Devine, Frank Feighan, Joan Freeman, Colette Kelleher, Gabrielle McFadden and Jennifer Murnane O'Connor.
