Mr. Gilmore: In normal circumstances, I would be reluctant to agree to a definite time conclusion for the Bill. However, in view of the length of time we gave to the debate on this Bill on Committee Stage, over 50 hours in total – it has got a very thorough scrutiny – and the fact we have an understanding that some of the more controversial and critical issues will be dealt with and debated in advance, I am prepared to agree to this arrangement.
