Tobacco Bill, 1934—Money Resolution. - Public Dance Halls Bill, 1934—Committee Stage.

Sections 1 and 2 ordered to stand part of the Bill.
SECTION 3.

I move amendment No. 1:—

To add at the end of Section 3 a new sub-section as follows:—

(2) Every person applying to the District Court for the grant of a public dancing licence shall—

(a) in the case of an application for a public dancing licence for a defined period not exceeding one month, give to the Superintendent of the Gárda Síochána within whose district is situate the place to which such application relates at least forty-eight hours' notice in writing of such application, and

(b) in every other case, give at least one month's notice in writing of such application to the Superintendent of the Gárda Síochána within whose district, and to the local authority within whose functional area, is situate the place to which such application relates.

The object of this amendment is to repair an omission in the Bill, as introduced. It is obviously necessary that notice should be given to the Gárda Síochána and also to the local authorities when the applications are being made.
