An Leas-Cheann Comhairle: Information on Denis Francis Jones  Zoom on Denis Francis Jones  This is a motion of concurrence in the setting up of a Joint Committee.

The First and Second Stages of the Bill have been agreed to by the Seanad. On completion of the Second Stage the Seanad passed the resolution set out on the Order Paper with a view to having a Joint Committee appointed to consider the Bill.

The motion before the House seeks the concurrence of the Dáil in the Seanad Resolution and, if it is agreed to, the Seanad will be notified accordingly.

The Seanad will then make an Order appointing a Select Committee and later the Dáil will be asked to make a [790] similar order. The two Select Committees thus appointed will be joined and will form the Joint Committee to consider the Bill.

The members of the Joint Committee are nominated by the Joint Committee on Standing Orders (Private Business) which will make its report to each House.

The Chairman of the Joint Committee to consider the Bill is appointed by the Ceann Comhairle and the Cathaoirleach of the Seanad jointly.

In due course the Joint Committee will consider the Bill, and on its issuing a report the Bill will be considered by the Seanad and Dáil in turn on Report and Fifth Stages.
