I beg to move amendment No. 25, in clause 50, page 24, line 10, after ‘scheme’, insert

‘which shall commence operation with effect from 1st April 2012’.

The amendment, unlike some, has the attraction of being incredibly simple and straightforward. All it does is to add to the beginning of clause 50 that the scheme should commence operations from April 2012. Since that is the Government’s stated policy objective, I imagine that the Minister will be happy to accept the amendment. I shall sit down now, if that is his intention.

Mr. O'Brienindicated dissent.
