Burial and Cremation Regulation Bill 2011: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act in the public interest to regularise the practice of cremation in Ireland and to establish a self-financing Burial and Cremation Regulatory Authority to oversee the sustainable planning, building and operation of all cemeteries and crematoria.

Is the Bill being 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.
