Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) (Foetal Pain Relief) Bill 2021: Second Stage (Resumed)

The following motion was moved by Deputy Carol Nolan on 15 December 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 declines to give the Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) (Foetal Pain Relief) Bill 2021 a second reading in order to allow for the review of the operation of the Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Act 2018 to conclude and for its recommendations to be considered.”
- (Minister for Health)

I must now deal with a postponed division relating to Second Stage of the Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) (Foetal Pain Relief) Bill 2021, taken on Wednesday, 15 December 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.
