Local Government (Sligo) Bill, 2000: First Stage.

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to provide for the establishment of the Borough of Sligo as a County Borough, for the alteration of the boundary of that Borough and to provide for related matters.

Is the Bill opposed?

Question put and agreed to.

Since this is a Private Members' Bill, Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members' time.

I move: "That the Bill be taken in Private Members' time."

Question put and agreed to.
