Mr. BLYTHE: Information on Ernest Blythe  Zoom on Ernest Blythe  I beg to move:—

Go ndeontar suim ná raghaidh thar £5,635 chun slánaithe na suime is gá chun íoctha an Mhuirir a thiocfidh [1447] chun bheith iníoctha i rith na bliana dar críoch an 31adh lá de Mhárta, 1927, chun íocaíochtanna i dtaobh Coimisiún na Stát-Sheirbhíse (Acht Rialuithe na Stát-Sheirbhíse, 1924).

That a sum not exceeding £5,635 be granted to complete the sum necessary to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1927, for the Salaries and Expenses of the Civil Service Commission. (Civil Service Regulation Act, 1924).

There is an increase under sub-head A of this Vote which is due partly to increments and partly to the appointment of an executive officer who will do the work necessary because of the increase in the number of selection boards which have had to be set up. There is provision for examiners, superintendents and members of selection boards. The title of the sub-head has been extended by the words “members of selection boards” in order to enable expenses of people whom it might be thought desirable to have on selection boards to be paid. The estimate there is based on the estimate of the number of examinations and the amount required to be paid.

Mr. BAXTER: Information on Patrick Francis Baxter  Zoom on Patrick Francis Baxter  I would like to ask if under the new Local Officers Bill it is contemplated that the Civil Service [1448] Commission will do the work? In this estimate is there included the amount of money that may be necessary to carry out the work under that Bill when it becomes law?

Mr. BLYTHE: Information on Ernest Blythe  Zoom on Ernest Blythe  It is contemplated that the staff will do the work, but not that the personnel of the Commission will be the same, although it will be the same in part. No provision is made in this estimate for that work.

Question put and agreed to.

Dáil went out of Committee.

Progress reported; Committee to sit again on Tuesday.
