Electoral (Amendment) Bill, 1993: First Stage.

I move: That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to provide for the filling of casual vacancies in the membership of Dáil Éireann within a specified period of time.

Is this Bill opposed?

Question put and agreed to.

Since this is a Private Members' Bill the Second Stage will, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members' Time.

Question put and agreed to.
