It is a little confusing. I refer to section 19 in the Bill as passed by Dáil Éireann which relates to the withholding of information. We had a brief discussion on this matter on Second Stage. The Minister might outline what the new provision will mean, what changes it introduces and how it will impact on legal service officers and others who engage with clients. Does it introduce a new onus on such people to be more forthcoming? What substantial difference is introduced by the section?
