Proxy voting in the Dáil

 

Sir, – In view of the requirement for social distancing, should the use of proxy voting be considered in the Dáil? In this way, with prior approval, a designated TD could vote electronically for absent colleagues, and avoid the need for relocating to the National Convention Centre.

The precedent has, I believe, already been set. – Yours, etc,

DORCHA LEE,
