Mercantile Marine Bill, 1955—From the Seanad.

The Dáil went into Committee to consider an amendment from the Seanad.

I move that the Dáil agree with the Seanad in the following amendment:—


Before sub-section (2) a new sub-section inserted as follows:—

(2) The flying of a flag by way of courtesy only, in accordance with accepted international usage, shall not be a contravention of this section.

This is a relatively unimportant amendment, inserted by the Seanad. I recommend that the amendment be inserted.

Question put and agreed to.
Amendment reported and agreed to.
