I move that the Committee agree with the Seanad in amendment No. 1:
In page 5, before section 9, the following new section inserted:
"9.—(1) The Minister, with the concurrence of the Minister for Finance, may, out of moneys provided by the Oireachtas, provide such compensation to or in respect of a Lay Commissioner ceasing to hold office by reason of section 2 of this Act as the Minister considers reasonable.
(2) This section shall have effect notwithstanding any other enactment.".
I acknowledge the support and assistance of the Opposition spokespersons and Opposition Whips in allowing the amicable dissolution of this body.
