Seanad Éireann debate -
Thursday, 30 Jul 1970

Vol. 68 No. 17

Imposition of Duties (Confirmation of Orders) Bill, 1970 (Certified Money Bill) Committee and Final Stages.

Question proposed: "That section 1 stand part of the Bill."

I should like to inquire from the Minister whether it would be possible to get Bills of this sort in the Seanad. We would welcome the Minister initiating legislation in this House. It seems to me that this kind of Bill in the context of what I have said on the Second Stage might very well be introduced here.

I will give due consideration to this. This Bill is a Money Bill and of necessity must be introduced in the Dáil. It is convenient the Senator should mention this because one of my Bills was introduced in the House to-day, namely, the Unit Trust Bill. For the short time I was Minister for Posts and Telegraphs I did introduce a Bill into the Seanad and I am anxious and willing to co-operate in this regard.

Question put and agreed to.
Section 2 agreed to.
Schedule agreed to.
Bill reported, without recommendation, received for final consideration and passed and ordered to be returned to the Dáil.
