An Ceann Comhairle: Information on Séamus Pattison  Zoom on Séamus Pattison  Amendment No. 2 is a drafting amendment and amendment No. 3 is related.

The Taoiseach: Information on Bertie Ahern  Zoom on Bertie Ahern  I move amendment No. 2:

In page 5, subsection 2(a), line 13, to delete “gCuid” and substitute “bhfo-alt”.

These are two minor related technical amendments to section 6, one in the Irish language text and, consequently, one in the English language text. These amendments are necessary to reflect that the elements of the section are under “Refer[136] ence” as a subsection rather than a part. They are technical.

Question proposed: “That the Schedule be the Schedule to the Bill.”

The Taoiseach: Information on Bertie Ahern  Zoom on Bertie Ahern  The Schedule consists of the text of the international agreement between the two Governments as constituted by an exchange of letters between the Irish and British Governments, signed by my colleague the Minister for Foreign Affairs and the British ambassador on Tuesday, 19 November.
