Northern Ireland (Elections) Bill — 22 Apr 1998

I beg to move amendment No. 12, in page 2, leave out lines 35 and 36.

The amendment would simply remove the two lines of clause 4(3)(b) which state:

"that he is a member of the Seanad Eireann (Senate of the Republic of Ireland)."

It being seven hours after the commencement of proceedings, The Chairman, pursuant to the Order [this day], put forthwith the Question already proposed from the Chair.

Amendment negatived.

Clause 4 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Clauses 5 to 9 ordered to stand part of the Bill.

Schedule agreed to.

Bill reported, without amendment.

Order for Third Reading read.

Motion made, and Question put forthwith, pursuant to Order [this day], That the Bill be now read the Third time.--[ Mr. Dowd. ]

The House divided: Ayes 178, Noes 10.
