SECTION 6.

(1) The Ceann Comhairle of Dáil Eireann and the Cathaoirleach of Seanad Eireann may by orders made, signed, and sealed by them jointly make such further modifications in the Parliamentary Deposits Act, 1846, the House of Common Costs Taxation Act, 1847, the Parliamentary Costs Act, 1865, and the House of Commons Costs Taxation Act, 1879, or any of those Acts as may be necessary to enable those Acts respectively to have full force and effect in regard to the awarding of costs of proceedings in relation to private bills before either House of the Oireachtas or a committee of either such House or a joint committee of both such Houses and in regard to the taxation of such costs.
(2) Every order made under this section shall be laid before each House of the Oireachtas as soon as may be after it is made, and if a resolution is passed by either such House, within the next subsequent twenty-one days on which such House has sat, annulling such order such order shall be annulled accordingly, but without prejudice to the validity of anything previously done under such order.
(3) Every order made under this section shall be deposited and kept as of record in the Private Bill Office of the Oireachtas and shall be published in IRIS OIFIGIUIL.

I propose to insert before sub-Section (2) a new sub-section as follows :—

" (2) Every order made under this Section shall be laid before each House of the Oireachtas as soon as may be after it is made, and if a resolution is passed by either such House within the next subsequent twenty-one days on which such House has sat annulling such order, such order shall be annulled accordingly, but without prejudice, to the validity of anything previously done under such order."

This section gives legislative power to the Ceann Comhairle of the Dáil and to the Chairman of the Seanad. What is the object of that ?

The object is to avoid another Bill, if we find that there is something in these Bills which we have failed to adopt in this Act.

Question put and agreed to.

I propose " to delete all words after the word ‘ shall ‘ in sub-Section (2), line 54, up to and including the word ‘ and ' in line 55."
