I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to prohibit the inducing of persons to participate in certain multi-level or pyramid schemes and to provide for other matters connected with such schemes.

I appreciate the Ceann Comhairle allowing me to introduce this Bill.

Since this is a Private Members' Bill, Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members' time.
