Destructive Insects and Pests (Amendment) Bill, 1990: Order for Second Stage.

Bill entitled an Act to amend the Destructive Insects and Pests (Consolidation) Act, 1958.

I move: "That the Second Stage be ordered for Wednesday, 31 October 1990", subject to agreement with the Whips.

Is this the Bill that envisages action against the Tánaiste? Will the Minister use it against the Tánaiste?

It is not applicable to the Opposition.

I promise not to use my powers under this Bill to destroy some of the pests on the other side.

Question put and agreed to.
