Judicial Council (Amendment) Bill 2021: Second Stage (Resumed) [Private Members]

The following motion was moved by Deputy Pearse Doherty on Tuesday, 1 June 2021: "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 Judicial Council (Amendment) Bill 2021 be deemed to be read a second time this day nine months, to allow for further consideration and analysis of how the Bill interacts with existing insurance data already collected by the Central Bank within the National Claims Information Database (NCID); and for such considerations to be taken into account in further scrutiny of the Bill.”.
-(Minister of State at the Department of Finance)

I must now deal with a postponed division relating to Second Stage of the Judicial Council (Amendment) Bill 2021, which took place on Tuesday, 1 June 2021. On the question, "That the amendment to the motion be made", a division was claimed, and in accordance with Standing Order 80(2), that division must be taken now.
