SEANAD RESUMES. - AGRICULTURAL PRODUCE (EGGS) BILL, 1924—SECOND STAGE.

Motion made and question proposed —"That this Bill be now read a second time."

I think this is rather an important subject.

AN CATHAOIRLEACH

Yes, but there will be a Committee Stage and a Report Stage to this Bill. This is only a formal stage of Second Reading, and I want to economise as far as I can the time of Senators. It is a matter of perfect indifference to me, but I think it the wisest course to adopt, because unless we advance this Bill this stage this week we cannot have the Committee Stage under our Standing Orders next week.

Question put and agreed to.
