Land and Conveyancing Law Reform Bill 2013: Fifth Stage

Question proposed: "That the Bill do now pass."

I wish to speak on Fifth Stage and propose a verbal amendment, as is permitted under Standing Orders. The amendment reads, "On page 3, line 11, to delete "2009" and substitute "1009" ". I am tabling this amendment to negate the section. The effect would be that the section would not be enforced. I do not know where the Minister is. We are still discussing the Bill. This outrageous repossession Bill which he is putting forward is giving the banks an open door policy.

The amendment is a direct negative and is ruled out of order.

The Minister of Justice and Equality did not even stay for Fifth Stage.

Question put.
The Seanad divided by electronic means.

Under Standing Order 62(3)(b), I request that the division be taken again other than by electronic means.

Question put:
The Seanad divided: Tá, 29; Níl, 15.
