We will be taking the Second Stage. That is what I would suggest. This is something that I have spoken out about down the years. It is certainly legislation that I and the Labour Party have supported. There are Members of differing views among the Independents. The Bill also received extensive discussion over a long period of time in the Seanad and that, probably, is one of the reasons it is so late coming here. However, without the agreement of the House, Second Stage is listed for today and that is how it will proceed.
