Registration of Wills Bill 2016: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to provide for the extension of the civil registration service to the registration of certain information regarding wills and for those purposes to revise the law relating to the civil registration service and to provide for related matters.

I thank the Leader of the House for agreeing to this. This Bill provides an opportunity for the registration of wills for the first time in the history of the State.

There is no need to make a speech. This is a formality.

I would like to make a speech.

I am sorry but now is not the time. You have been given leave to introduce.

I understand. I am so happy about the decision to allow it to be brought before the House.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 5 July 2016.
