(Speaker Continuing)

[Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív: Information on Éamon Ó Cuív Zoom on Éamon Ó Cuív] We cannot have that conflict. Fianna Fáil will not support the amendment because it is creating a crazy, legal contradiction, no more and no less. I ask the Deputies to reflect on this. This is what these amendments are about. They are not about anything else even though we have spent an hour and a half debating points which were mainly germane to section 7 of the Bill.

Deputy Josepha Madigan: Information on Josepha Madigan Zoom on Josepha Madigan I acknowledge Deputy Ó Cuív's work on section 8 of the Bill.

  Rather than re-ventilating everything at this stage I believe it would be wise to put the question, under Standing Order 68(1). It is at the discretion of the Ceann Comhairle but this issue was long debated last night and this evening. In my view there is nothing to be gained by reiterating every point that was made again today.

   Amendment put and declared lost.

Deputy Peadar Tóibín: Information on Peadar Tóibín Zoom on Peadar Tóibín I move amendment No. 25:

In page 12, between lines 22 and 23, to insert the following:
“Amendment of Act of 1976

8. Section 40 of the Act of 1976, as amended by the Act of 2000, is amended —
(a) in subsection (1), by the insertion of the following new paragraphs after paragraph (b):

(d) The Minister may make regulations to protect individual hedgerows of archaeological, historical, ecological or landscape significance.”,

(b) in subsection (2)(c), by the insertion of the words “, or under notice from,” between “safety by” and “a Minister”.”.

  Amendment put and declared lost.

Deputy Catherine Martin: Information on Catherine Martin Zoom on Catherine Martin I move amendment No. 26:
