Regulation of Lobbying (Post-Term Employment as Lobbyist) Bill 2020: Second Stage (Resumed) [Private Members]

The following motion was moved by Deputy Ged Nash on Thursday, 17 June 2021: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time."
Debate resumed on amendment No. 1:
To delete all words after “That” and substitute the following:
“Dáil Éireann:
— recognises that the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform’s review of the Regulation of Lobbying Act 2015 has just concluded; and
— resolves that the Regulation of Lobbying (Post-Term Employment as Lobbyist) Bill 2020 be deemed to be read a second time this day six months, to allow for a proposal for draft legislation to take account of the recommendations arising from that review to be brought forward.”
- (Minister of State at the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform, Deputy Ossian Smyth).

I must now deal with a postponed division relating to Second Stage of the Regulation of Lobbying (Post-Term Employment as Lobbyist) Bill 2020 which took place on Thursday, 17 June 2021. On the question, "That the amendment to the motion be made", a division was claimed, and in accordance with Standing Order 80(2), that division must be taken now.
