Report of Special Committee on the Companies Bill, 1962.

The report of the Committee is as follows: The Special Committee has gone through the Bill and has made amendments thereto. The Bill, as amended, is reported to the Dáil.

I move:

(i) That the Report do lie upon the Table;

(ii) That the Bill, as amended in the Special Committee, and the report of the proceedings of the Committee be printed.

Agreed and ordered accordingly.

I suggest that the Report Stage be taken on 28th May, 1963. It is my intention on that date, or on whatever date it will be possible to take the Report Stage, to ask the Dáil to commit the Report Stage amendments to the Special Committee for consideration.

And the Minister will kindly confirm the promise he has already made that he will submit his amendments in adequate time to the members of the Committee before that date?

I certainly shall.

Thank you.
