Select Committee on Social Affairs díospóireacht -
Wednesday, 19 Mar 1997


I move amendment No. 42:

In page 12, subsection (3), to delete lines 35 to 39.

Amendment agreed to.
Amendments 43 to 49, inclusive, not moved.

I move amendment No. 50:

In page 13, subsection (3)(e), line 23, after "considerations" to insert "or to the need to address past discrimination".

I sympathise with the Deputy's intention in tabling this amendment but I do not think it is necessary. Past discrimination, in so far as it is relevant to the present, will be reflected in present day disadvantage and equality. This is exactly the situation covered by section 15(b).

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
Question proposed: "That section 7, as amended, stand part of the Bill."

I want to flag a possible amendment to this section on Report Stage.

Question put and agreed to.
