Control of Economic Activity (Occupied Territories) Bill 2018: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to give effect to the State’s obligations arising under the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War and under customary international humanitarian law; and for that purpose to make it an offence for a person to import or sell goods or services originating in an occupied territory or to extract resources from an occupied territory in certain circumstances; and to provide for related matters.

I second the proposal.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Next Tuesday, 30 January 2018.

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 30 January 2018.
Sitting suspended at 12.15 p.m. and resumed at 12.45 p.m.
