Harbours Bill, 1986: Order for Second Stage.

Bill entitled an Act to provide for the establishment of a harbour authority for the Estuary of the Shannon; to provide for the powers and functions of such authority; and for those and for other purposes to amend and extend the Harbours Acts, 1946 to 1976, and to provide for other matters connected with the matters aforesaid.

I move: "That the Second Stage be taken on Wednesday, 28 May 1986." Again I must welcome the fact that this Bill has been introduced. It would be unrealistic to order it for any date earlier than 28 May, and to be still more realistic I do not think it will be taken until some time in June.

Question put and agreed to.
