Consumer Credit (Amendment) Bill 2018: Second Stage (Resumed) [Private Members]

The following motion was moved by Deputy Pearse Doherty on Wednesday, 12 December 2018: "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 Consumer Credit (Amendment) Bill 2018 be deemed to be read a second time this day twelve months, in order to allow for completion of the Department of Finance’s examination of University College Cork’s report, ‘Interest Rate Restrictions on Credit for Low-income Borrowers’, which was launched by the Social Finance Foundation (SFF), and engagement by the Department with stakeholders, including through the Personal Micro Credit Taskforce set up by the SFF.
(Minister of State at the Deputy of Finance, Deputy Michael D'Arcy).

I must now deal with a postponed division relating to Second Stage of the Consumer Credit (Amendment) Bill 2018 which took place on Wednesday, 12 December 2018. On the question, "That the amendment to the motion be made", a division was claimed, and in accordance with Standing Order 70(2), that division must be taken now.
