Provision of Objective Sex Education Bill 2018: Second Stage (Resumed) [Private Members]

I must now deal with a postponed division relating to Second Stage of the Provision of Objective Sex Education Bill 2018. On the question, "That the Bill be now read a Second Time", a division was claimed, and in accordance with Standing Order 70(2) that division must be taken now.

Question again put: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time."

Deputies

Vótáil.

Will the Deputies claiming a division please rise?

Deputies Mattie McGrath and Michael Harty rose.

As fewer than ten Members have risen, I declare the question carried. The names of the Deputies dissenting will be recorded in the Journal of the Proceedings of the Dáil.

Question declared carried.

As this is a Private Members' Bill it must, under Standing Orders 84A(3)(a) and 141, be referred to the select committee. The relevant committee for this Bill is the Select Committee on Education and Skills.
