That pursuant to subsection 2° of section 2 of Article 25 of the Constitution, Seanad Éireann concurs with the Government in a request to the President to sign the Health (Preservation and Protection and other Emergency Measures in the Public Interest) Bill 2020 on a date which is earlier than the fifth day after the date on which the Bill shall have been presented to him.
I will be very brief. As Acting Leader, I thank everybody. It has been an honour to serve. I wish everyone going forward in the election the best of luck. To those who are not, I wish them well. I wish the Government, the Minister, Deputy Harris, his colleagues and those who will serve in the next Oireachtas the best of luck dealing with this very serious crisis.
