Residential Institutions Statutory Fund (Amendment) Bill 2016: Second Stage (Resumed) [Private Members]

The following motion was moved by Deputy Clare Daly on 2 March 2017: "That the Bill be now read a Second Time."
Debate resumed on amendment No. 1:
To delete all words after “That” and substitute the following:
“Dáil Éireann resolves that the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund (Amendment) Bill 2016 be deemed to be read a second time this day eight months, to allow for scrutiny between now and then by the Oireachtas Committee on Education and Skills and for the Committee to consider and hold hearings that have regard in particular to ensure that the proposed Bill:
(a) takes account of recommendations of the Review of Eligibility for Caranua (Residential Institutions Statutory Fund) which is ongoing and is expected to be concluded in July 2017;
(b) does not give rise to any unintended consequences that create any adverse impact on the 15,000 former residents who qualify for support under the Residential Institutions Redress Scheme and the 4,000 former residents currently availing of approved services provided by Caranua; and
(c) identifies and corrects any potential legal issues arising from definitions of eligibility and approved services in the Bill.”.
- (Deputy Thomas Byrne)

I must now deal with a postponed division relating to amendment No. 1 to Second Stage of the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund (Amendment) Bill 2016, which took place on Thursday, 2 March 2017. On the question, "That the amendment be made", a division was claimed and in accordance with Standing Order 70(2) that division must be taken now.
