10/12/2014 [Bills] A Cheann Comhairle, before we begin today's proceedings, I would be obliged if in accordance with Standing Order 140, you would direct the Clerk to make the following minor drafting corrections to the text of the Bill. These are being done in the interests of textual clarity and correction ...Vol-861 Book-2 Page [434]
10/12/2014 [Bills] Are there copies of this available? It is very difficult for people.[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] I have no doubt that the changes are technical. However, this is not emergency legislation and we have just been advised of this now without a script.[Calleary, Dara]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] Can we have it copied and given to the spokespeople, please?[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] It is only 14 years in the making.[Calleary, Dara]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]

10/12/2014 [Bills] We can continue on, but if people have the script in front of them, they know what the Minister is talking about. It is getting a bit lost itself.[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] Is it possible to proceed with the amendments while we get the script or does this have to be done first?[Calleary, Dara]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] It does not have to be done first. We can proceed with the amendments while the document is being copied and we will revert back.[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]

10/12/2014 [Bills] No, they are just textual corrections to cross-references in the Bill which had slight inaccuracies.[Bruton, Richard]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] Are these in addition to the 300 amendments we are dealing with?[Tóibín, Peadar]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] Yes. They are just verbally correcting incorrect cross-references. Obviously they were picked up in the proofreading.[Bruton, Richard]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] Are they for discussion and decision today?[Tóibín, Peadar]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] They are. They are not substantive. They simply provide textual clarity and correct cross-references. There is nothing substantive in them.[Bruton, Richard]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] They make no substantive change to any part of the Bill or anything.[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] I appreciate that and I accept the Minister's good faith on it. However, it is very difficult for us-----[Tóibín, Peadar]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [435]
10/12/2014 [Bills] We are getting a copy of it.[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [436]
10/12/2014 [Bills] -----even to be able just to do it on the hoof. Usually we would get some time to-----[Tóibín, Peadar]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [436]
10/12/2014 [Bills] If there was any change in the actual Bill itself, I would suggest that we would allow time for Deputies to discuss that. I am told it is purely textual.[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [436]
10/12/2014 [Bills] I think the Bills Office has made that clear. They have asked that this be read into the record to ensure that these cross-references are accurately done. There is nothing substantive in them at all.[Bruton, Richard]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [436]
10/12/2014 [Bills] They are cross references really. Perhaps we could proceed with some of the amendments while we are waiting.[An Ceann Comhairle]Vol-861 Book-2 Page [436]
