I move amendment No. 3:

In page 5, subsection (1)(d), line 43, after "preserved" to insert the following:

"or that are the subject of a request under section 6".

This is a technical amendment to make it clear that data should not be destroyed where a request for disclosure has been made. The Minister stated in the Dáil that this point was catered for by the reference to "one month" in section 4(1)(d). The insertion of the amendment would provide additional clarity regarding the intention in section 4.
