Companies Bill 2012: Committee Stage (Resumed)
Tá mé go mór i gcoinne an section seo. Caithfimid bheith dáiríre faoin teanga. Some people use Irish as their primary language. This issue used to arise with legislation at the justice committee. The Department knows that when it is drafting a Bill, there is a legislative requirement that it be published in tandem in Irish. One assumes one has drafted the Companies Bill freisin. To table this amendment at the end of Committee Stage is wrong. Whatever changes need to be made to the Bill in English can be made in tandem as Gaeilge freisin.
