Editorial Notes:

E12

The amending provision which inserted s. 71A into para. 28A came into effect before the substitution of the entire paragraph by the Criminal Justice (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009 , s. 48(c)(iii). This arose because both pieces of legislation were passing through the Oireachtas around the same time. To avoid undoing the insertion of s. 71A, the later provision has not been commenced.
