As it is now after 11.30 a.m, I am required to put the following question in accordance with an order of the Dáil of this day: "That the Fourth Stage is hereby completed."
Minerals Development Bill, 1999 [ Seanad ] : Report and Final Stages.
I thank the Opposition spokespersons for their help and co-operation with the Bill which was highly technical.
The Labour Party supports the Bill. We were happy with the responses we received from the Minister on Committee Stage. I hope the same effort will be put into resolving the problems of the workers on the Corrib field in the west. I wish to discuss this matter with the Minister on a future date.
