SECTION 12.

If any question shall arise as to the right of any officer or other member of the Gárda Síochána to hold or execute any such office, common reputation shall, to all intents and purposes, be deemed and held to be a sufficient evidence of such right, and it shall not be necessary to produce any appointment, or any oath or affidavit, or other document or matter whatsoever, in proof of such right.

I think the words " to all intents and purposes " would be better out. It weakens it. I propose that these words be deleted.

I accept that.
