Vol. 1 No. 38


Bill reported.
Motion made: "That the Bill do now pass."


There are a few small amendments which I wish to have inserted, and which Senator MacLysaght will move.

I beg to move:—

In line 10 of the title to delete the Irish word "An" and to insert in lieu thereof the English word "the."

To delete the expression "Civic Guard" wherever the same occurs in the Bill (except where the same first occurs in Sub-Section 2 of Section 21, and where the same first occurs in Section 22), and to insert in lieu thereof the expression "Gárda Síochána."

I beg to second.

I think the Senator is neglecting his duty. His duty is to make us all think in Irish, and not to make us all pretend that we are thinking in Irish.

Amendment put, and agreed to.

I beg to move:—

Section 22, line, 29, after the words "police force" to add the words "and every mention or reference contained in any Act of the Oireachtas passed or to be passed in the present Session, of or to the Civic Guard shall, where the context so admits or requires, be construed and take effect as including a mention of or reference to the Gárda Síochána established under this Act."

Amendment put, and agreed to.
Motion put and agreed to.
