61. To ask the Taoiseach when he will issue the tender for a polling company to source members of the citizens' assembly; and his plans to publish full details of the call for tender, given the importance of the issues to be addressed. [15598/16]
Members for the Citizens' Assembly will be selected on the basis of being representative of the Irish electorate in terms of gender, age and regional spread by a polling company commissioned for that purpose.
