I thank the Minister for his acceptance of, if not the exact wording, the spirit of so much of what was contained in my amendments. A number of my amendments were not discussed because they were ruled out of order on the grounds that they involve a potential charge on the Revenue. I accept the points made by the Minister with regard to my other amendments.
As this is a Seanad Bill and it will come back to this House I am prepared to allow the battle go to the other place and let its Members table the few amendments I had in mind. I thank the Minister and his officials for acceptance of so many of the points which were spelled out on Committee Stage.
