Civil Partnership Bill 2009 – Report Stage
Guess what’s back! That’s right, following discussion of various suggested amendments during the Committee Stage, the Civil Partnership Bill 2009 returns, this time for the Report Stage in the Dáil. The debate is given a prime time slot, between 5pm and 9pm, tomorrow, Thursday, 1st July 2010.
As Suzy Byrne indicates, the Report Stage debate means that all Deputies are given the opportunity to contribute to a debate on the Bill as amended. Dáil Standing Orders restrict amendments at Report Stage to issues arising out of the Committee Stage proceedings. If a minister gives notice that he is to bring later amendments, however, then these can be debated in Report stage.
