Declaration of Independence Day Bill 2017: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to recognise the meeting of the First Dáil and the Declaration of Independence made on 21 January 1919 and to provide for a “Declaration of Independence Day” to be held on 21 January annually and to provide for related matters.

I second the proposal.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 16 May 2017.
