I move amendment No. 154:

In page 1056, after line 29, to insert the following:“Disapplication of section 7 of Official Languages Act 2003
1430. (1) Section 7 of the Official Languages Act 2003 shall not apply in relation to this Act.
(2) The text of this Act shall be made available electronically in each of the official languages as soon as practicable after its enactment.”.
This new section will disapply section 7 of the Official Languages Act 2003 to avoid an undesirable delay in the publishing of the new Companies Bill once enacted in paper form until it is translated into Irish and available in both official languages. Given the size of the Bill, there is likely to be a substantial delay if section 7 of the Official Languages Act is not disapplied.
