SECTION 42.

(1) From and after the commencement of Part III. of this Act the word " creamery " shall mean premises registered in the register of creameries or in respect of which a licence under this section has been granted and is in force.
(2) The Minister may if and when during three years from the passing of this Act the special circumstances of the case justify him in doing so. grant to the registered proprietor of any particular premises registered in the register of manufacturing exporters a licence to use the word " creamery " in relation to such premises, and any such licence may be granted subject to such conditions and for such time (not extending beyond three years from the passing of this Act) and may be revoked, as and when the Minister thinks proper.
(3) Any person who, after the expiration of two months from the commencement of Part III. of this Act, and without having a subsisting licence in that behalf granted under this section, uses in connection with any premises in Saorstát Eireann which are used for the manufacture of or wholesale dealing in butter, cheese, margarine, margarine cheese, or milk-blended butter and are not registered in the register of creameries any name or description stating, implying or suggesting, that such premises are a creamery or are registered in the register of creameries shall be guilty of an offence under this section, and shall be liable on summary conviction thereof, in the case of a first offence, to a penalty not exceeding ten pounds, and, in the case of a second or any subsequent offence, to a penalty not exceeding twenty pounds.

I beg to move in Sub-section (1):—" To delete all from the word ‘ from ' in line 55 up to and including the word ‘ Act ' in line 56." I think instead of the word " commencement " it should read: " From and after the enforcement," or something like that. Is there an appointed day?

Yes, the word " commencement " does look rather vague.

The proper way to put that would be " on and after the date appointed for the coming into operation."

That will apply with regard to this amendment 62, and also with regard to amendment 63 which is as follows:—" Section 42, sub-section (3), to delete all after the word ‘ expiration ' in line 5 up to and including the word ‘ Act ' in line 6, and to substitute therefor the words ‘ of a date to be prescribed.'"

I will accept that; I think the suggestion is a good one.

Amendments 62 and 63 accepted and passed.
