An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Séamus Pattison Zoom on Séamus Pattison I have received from Deputy Róisín Shortall, who was suspended from the service of the Dáil on Thursday, 21 November for disregarding the authority of the Chair, a written and approved expression of regret in the following terms:

21 November 2002

Dear Ceann Comhairle

In accordance with the requirements of Standing Order No. 61(3), I wish to convey to you my sincere regret over my conduct in the House on Thursday, 21 November 2002. I regret my refusal to obey your ruling calling on me to resume my seat, and the disruption which led to my suspension.

Yours sincerely

Róisín Shortall

In accordance with Standing Order 61(3)(b), I must now move: “That the Order of the Dáil of 21 November suspending Deputy Róisín Shortall from the service of the Dáil be discharged”. Is that agreed? Agreed.
