Civil Law (Presumption of Death) Bill 2016: [Seanad Bill amended by the Dáil] Report and Final Stages
Amendment No. 1 to section 1 is a technical amendment to update the citation provisions for the Civil Registration Acts, which are consequent upon the changes being introduced in this Bill.
The combined effect of amendments Nos. 2 to 4, inclusive, to the same section is to provide that the commencement order for Part 3, which amends the Civil Registration Act 2004, will be subject to consultation with my colleague, the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection. The rationale for this is that the Bill is amending legislation for which that Minister has responsibility.
