Sound Broadcasting Bill, 1987: Allocation of Time.

I will endeavour to clarify it. My understanding is that in the first group we will deal with amendments Nos. 4, 8, 17 and 59 together with amendments to amendment No 59, Nos 1 to 5. We will deal wi...
That is correct.
We will allow Deputy O'Malley to finish this point.
I am now moving to the amendments to amendment No. 59. Amendment No. 1 to amendment No. 59 not moved.
Many a hope has faded in this House. Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
The Minister has indicated that he proposes accepting amendment No. 3.
Is Deputy De Rossa happy with that?
We now move to the second group of amendments and I hope our progress will be as satisfactory as with that on the first group.
I remind the House, Deputy De Rossa, that we are still dealing with a quarter of the new Bill and we might move on.
We are touching there on amendment No. 16. I thought maybe we would deal with and move away from amendments Nos. 10, 11 and 15.
Deputy Cooney, conviction is not as enthusiastic as it was at the outset. Amendments Nos. 1 and 2 to amendment No. 10 not moved. Amendments Nos. 11 and 15 not moved.
We are now moving to amendment No. 16 in the name of the Minister but first we will take amendment No. 1 to amendment No. 16.

Could I get the co-operation of the House? In respect of amendment No. 34, is the Deputy pressing the amendment?
We come now to amendment No. 51.
Is Deputy De Rossa comfortable with that assurance?
We now move to the next category, amendments Nos. 42, 43 and 45. Amendments Nos. 42 and 45 are Government amendments.
Is the Deputy not pressing his amendment?
We come to the next category, amendment No. 49 and amendments Nos. 1 and 2 to amendment No. 49. NEW SECTION.
We now come to amendment No. 50, amendments Nos. 1 to 4, inclusive, to amendment No. 50 and amendments Nos. 53 and 56. NEW SECTION.
Does Deputy Bruton accept the Minister's explanation?
I take it that Deputy O'Sullivan is not pressing amendment No. 3?
We will now move on to the next category, commencing with amendments Nos. 7, 54 and 55.
