Fines Bill 2004: First Stage.

  Mr. J. O’Keeffe: I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to update fines and other monetary amounts in legislation in line with inflation in respect of any past enactments and to provide for the prospective indexation of fines and other monetary amounts contained in any future enactments; to amend the Statute Law (Restatement) Act 2002; to provide for the payment of fines by instalments; to provide for means to be taken into consideration in the imposition of fines and to provide for related matters.

  An Ceann Comhairle: Is the Bill opposed?

  Mr. Kitt: No.

Question put and agreed to.

[1484]   An Ceann Comhairle: Since this is a Private Members’ Bill, Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members’ time.

  Mr. J. O’Keeffe: I move: “That the Bill be taken in Private Members’ time.”

Question put and agreed to.
