(Speaker Continuing)

[Senator Ivana Bacik: Information on Ivana Bacik Zoom on Ivana Bacik] Senator D'Arcy spoke about NAMA legislation. He made the point that the Garda Síochána investigates allegations rather than the Minister for Finance. Senator D'Arcy very helpfully suggested that John Major would be a very appropriate person to invite to speak to the House as a distinguished speaker, in particular as it is the 20th anniversary of the Downing Street Declaration. The Committee on Procedure and Privileges considered the matter of distinguished speakers and agreed to consider a list of potential distinguished speakers at its first meeting in the new year. We will add John Major to that list. That was a very positive and good suggestion from Senator D'Arcy.

An Cathaoirleach: Information on Paddy Burke Zoom on Paddy Burke Senator Darragh O'Brien has proposed an amendment to the Order of Business: "That a debate with the Minister for Finance on the oversight of NAMA and the interaction of senior officials in his Department with NAMA and the leaking of confidential information to preferred bidders be taken today." Is the amendment being pressed?

Senator Darragh O'Brien: Information on Darragh O'Brien Zoom on Darragh O'Brien Yes.

  Amendment put.

  The Seanad divided by electronic means.
