Industrial Development Bill 2006: Committee and Remaining Stages.

Sections 1 to 4, inclusive, agreed to.
Title agreed to.
Bill reported without amendment and received for final consideration.
Question proposed: "That the Bill do now pass."

I thank the Minister for coming to the Seanad on an historic day. I know he was anxious to get this Bill passed. I thank Senator Coghlan for his great co-operation at all times. When it comes to anything to do with industry, Senator Coghlan has been strongly supportive of Bills going through this House. I thank him especially for his co-operation on this Bill. I again thank the Minister and his officials.

I also wish to thank the Minister and his staff. It was important to deal with this matter expeditiously, as the end of the year is approaching. Of course Opposition Members are amenable when good, constructive work such as this is being done, as the Members opposite are aware. I congratulate the Minister and wish him all the best with the Bill.

I again thank Senators Coghlan and Leyden and other Members for their co-operation and facilitation of the speedy passage of this Bill. While it is technical in nature, it is an important Bill and I appreciate their co-operation and assistance at this time of year. I also thank my staff for the work they have put into this issue for some time.

I also included them.

I suspect they are particularly happy with the degree of facilitation shown in the House this evening.

Question put and agreed to.

Acting Chairman
