Bille an Reifrinn (Leasú), 1987: An Coiste agus na Céimeanna Deiridh. Referendum (Amendment) Bill, 1987: Committee and Subsequent Stages

ALT 1.

SECTION 1.

Mr. B. Ryan: Tairgim leasú a 1:

I move amendment No. 1:

In page 3, Part I of the Appendix, line 31, before “Is é atá beartaithe” to insert “Chinn an Chúirt Uachtarach i mbreithiúnas a thug sí an 9 Aibreán, 1987, nach raibh Teideal III den Ionstraim Eorpach Aonair (a bhaineann le beartais eachtracha) de réir cheanglais an Bhunreachta.”

and

In page 3, Part II of the Appendix, line 46, before “The Tenth Amendment” to insert “The Supreme Court in a judgment delivered on April 9th, 1987, found that Title III of the Single European Act, (relating to foreign policy matters), did not conform with the requirements of the Constitution.”

My learned colleague, Senator Robinson, pointed out that the Supreme Court did not find that Title III does not conform with the requirements of the Constitution but that the process of ratification of Title III does not conform with the requirements. For that reason in particular and also because it is late, I wish to withdraw the amendment.

Tarraingíodh siar an leasú faoi chead.

[275] Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Aontaíodh Alt 1.

Section 1 agreed to.

Title agreed to.

Tuairiscíodh an Bille gan leasú, glacadh é chun an breithniú deiridh a dhéanamh air agus ritheadh é.

Bill reported without amendment, received for final consideration and passed.
