Amendment of section 14 of Principal Act

14. (1) Section 14(2)(d) of the Principal Act is amended by the substitution of “the Authority” for “the Government”.

(2) If any steps have been taken by the Garda Commissioner before the commencement of this section to dismiss from the Garda Síochána a member not above the rank of inspector, section 14 of the Principal Act shall apply to the dismissal of the person as if the amendment of that section in subsection (1) had not been made.

(3) After the commencement of this section, section 14 (as amended by subsection (1)) of the Principal Act shall, other than in the case of persons to whom subsection (2) applies, apply to the dismissal from the Garda Síochána of a member not above the rank of inspector even if the conduct of the member to which the dismissal relates occurred before that commencement.
