Business of Seanad.

As Acting Leader, I propose, with the permission of colleagues, that we extend our debate for 15 minutes in order to conclude Committee Stage. I know we will not be able to deal with Report and Final Stages, but it would be helpful if we were able to complete Committee Stage.

I agree we could finish Committee Stage, but due to the intricacy of the Bill and the number of Government amendments made, it would be better not to move on to Report Stage. I am agreeable to completing Committee Stage.

I agree with completing Committee Stage now as there is not much left to be done.

Is it agreed that we continue and complete Committee Stage of the Fines Bill by 5.15 p.m? Agreed.
