Question declared carried.

  Faisnéiseadh go rabhthas tar éis glacadh leis an gceist.

An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Seán Ó Fearghaíl Zoom on Seán Ó Fearghaíl The nomination by the Taoiseach for appointment by the President to be members of the Government has therefore been agreed by the Dáil.

Tá gnó an lae inniu tagtha chun deiridh agus de bhun Rún an Tí, Dé Céadaoin, tá an Dáil ar athló go dtí meánlae, an Mháirt seo chugainn. Go raibh míle maith agaibh.

I ask Members to remain in their seats while the nominated Members of the Government are escorted from the auditorium. Members may then vacate the auditorium block by block as directed by the parliamentary ushers. I think the Taoiseach is going to be asked if he will lead his Ministers out at this point. I ask other Members to remain in their seats. Could we have the cooperation of Members so that the Taoiseach might lead his Cabinet from the auditorium? Go raibh maith agaibh ar fad.

The Dáil adjourned at 9.10 p.m. until 12 noon on Tuesday, 30 June 2020.
