I beg to move:—
To add to Section 6, page 3, a new sub-section as follows:—
(3) Section 35 of the Principal Act (which relates to the purposes for which the Minister may make regulations) shall have effect as if there were added to paragraph (c) of sub-section (1) of that section the following:—
"For requiring, on the consideration and examination of any such claims and questions, the attendance of any person whose presence is necessary or desirable for the purpose of giving evidence concerning such claims and questions, and."
This amendment is proposed as an alternative to the one introduced by Deputy Corish when the Bill was in Committee. It is very much more general in its terms, and it will give the Minister power to compel the attendance of any person as a witness concerning evidence as to claims and questions.
