Patsy McGlone: Excuse me, Ms Bailey. Members, if you wish to conduct conversations, I re-emphasise that the place to do so is outside, please.
Patsy McGlone: I beg your pardon, Mr Clarke?

Patsy McGlone: I now call the Bill sponsor, Ms Clare Bailey.

Patsy McGlone: Thank you. That concludes the list of Members who were down to speak. The Question is that the draft — Sorry. Excuse me. I have yet to call the Minister. Pardon me, Minister, for that. I call the Minister to conclude and wind up the debate.
Patsy McGlone: Members should take their ease until we sort out a few issues around the next item on the agenda, please.
Patsy McGlone: I call the Minister for Communities to move the Bill. Glaoim ar an Aire Pobal leis an Bhille a mholadh. Moved. — [Ms Hargey (The Minister for Communities).]
Patsy McGlone: As no amendments have been tabled, there is no opportunity to discuss the Motor Vehicles (Compulsory Insurance) Bill today. Members will, of course, be able to have a full debate at Final Stage. The Further Consideration Stage is therefore concluded, and the Bill stands referred to the Speaker.
Patsy McGlone: I have had an approach, so, at the end of this item of business, we may take a recess to allow Members to take a comfort break and to get something to eat and the likes.
Patsy McGlone: OK. The Business Committee has agreed that there should be no time limit on this debate. I call the Minister for Communities to open the debate. Glaoim ar an Aire Pobal leis an díospóireacht a fhoscailt, le do thoil.
