There are two corrections to the amendments as they appear in front of the Senators. First of all, "section 30" should be written above both amendments and in amendment No. 2 "In page 18 between lines 15 and 16 to insert the following." there are two words which are left out: "new subsection", which should be added and, if they are acceptable to the Senators, perhaps we could include them at this stage. Senator FitzGerald made——
Industrial and Provident Societies (Amendment) Bill, 1978: Report and Final Stages.
If I may interrupt the Minister, on the Report Stage neither of these corrections is necessary.
Thank you. I was just saying that Senator FitzGerald made a very valuable contribution here this afternoon on the Bill. As a result of the points he raised, particularly on this section, it was decided that the amendments should be made. In fact, the amendments are in line, as the Senator correctly pointed out, with the relevant section in the Companies Act.
I welcome these amendments. I made a number of points on different sections, in particular on the interpretation section, section 2, section 7, section 25 and section 36 and this section. I have considered what the Minister said on these points and absorbed other information since she made these remarks and I am satisfied that the sections in the Bill as amended are in the public interest.
Before we proceed with the matter on the Adjournment, the Seanad would like to know when it is proposed to sit again.
I will have to say sine die because I am not sure whether there will be business next week.
No comment is called for.
