I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to amend the Consumer Credit Act 1995.

The Bill seeks to place a cap on interest rates charged by licensed moneylenders approved in the State.

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