Dáil Éireann debate -
Wednesday, 15 Nov 1989

Vol. 393 No. 2

Prohibition of Incitement to Racial, Religious or National Hatred Bill, 1988: Fifth Stage.

I move: "That the Bill do now pass".

I want to thank all Members of the House for the manner in which this Bill was debated this afternoon. I thank them for their gracious comments in relation to the amendments I proposed. In particular I thank Deputy Flanagan for his last comments.

The passage of this Bill by the Dáil marks a watershed in our history. It is a Bill that has been long overdue. It is great to see that it has finally passed the Dáil. Hopefully it will be passed by the Seanad and become law very soon because its provisions are needed.

I should like also to express my appreciation to the Minister in having been receptive up to a fair point on many of the amendments tabled.

Question put and agreed to.
