Extension of term of office.

(2) No order shall be made under this section save on the application of the Senate and in relation to the membership at the date of the passing of this Act.

(3) Where, before the date of an order made under this section, there has not been taken any step prescribed by the statutes of the National University of Ireland in relation to the nomination, appointment and election of members of the Senate required, but for such order, to take place, it shall be deemed to have been proper not to take such step.

Laying of order before Houses of Oireachtas.
