DAIL IN COMMITTEE. - THE DAIL RESUMES.

The Bill is reported, without amendment.

Mr. O'HIGGINS

I ask that the next Stage be taken now.

I think, before we agree to this, we should have some reason for its urgency. I have no objection to it, but I think that where there is any departure from the Standing Orders, we should have some reason for the departure.

Mr. O'HIGGINS

Short as the Bill is, it is an important Bill, and any day a trustee might find himself in the position of having to sue for the recovery of payment made by cheque by a deceased person during his life. Any day the executors of a deceased bookmaker might find themselves in the position of being bound to sue for the return of all payments made by that bookmaker to his clients. In view of the fact that no amendments have been put in, and that there is a general measure of agreement with regard to the Bill, we ought to recognise its urgency, and pass it through its final stages without delay.

I am agreeable.

Mr. O'HIGGINS

I move that the Bill be received for final consideration.

Agreed to.

Mr. O'HIGGINS

I move that the Bill do now pass.

Agreed to.

The Bill will accordingly be sent to the Seanad.
