CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - ADMINISTRATION ECONOMIES.

Will the President say whether the Committee to be appointed is one which will report to the Dáil or is it a Departmental Committee?More Button

And it will report to the Minister?More Button

CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - BLIND PERSONS.

From the information in the possession of the Minister, is it possible to make an estimate as to whether there has been any considerable increase since 1911 in those numbers?More Button

Perhaps the Minister would include it in the Official Report? The additional information is as follows:— In Dublin County Borough and Dublin County where schemes for promoting the welfare of the blind...More Button

CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - RE-VALUATION OF FISHING BOATS.

Are we to take it that it was a premature disclosure of a decision of the Executive Council when the Minister for Fisheries made a statement in this respect to a public meeting which was not made firs...More Button

PRIVATE BUSINESS. - DATE OF DISSOLUTION.

Before we proceed with the Orders of the Day, might I ask if the President could give the House any information as to his expectations and intentions so far as the date of the Dissolution is concerned...More Button

That is nothing.More Button

ORDUITHE AN LAE—ORDERS OF THE DAY. - FINANCIAL RESOLUTIONS—REPORT.

This is, I take it, the resolution regarding the rate of income tax and super-tax to be charged in future. I hope it will be possible on the Committee Stage of the Finance Bill to persuade the House ...More Button

There is one small matter I wish to direct the Minister's attention to before he finally passes the draft of the Finance Bill. In the Income Tax Act, 1918, Section 39, subsection (2), it is provided:...More Button

ORDUITHE AN LAE—ORDERS OF THE DAY. - CURRENCY BILL, 1927.—THIRD STAGE.

Does that enable dirty notes to be re-issued?More Button

I made that remark because it seems to me that it is important from the hygienic point of view that no notes should be re-issued, but that they should be treated as Bank of England notes are, and, onc...More Button

I would like the Minister to throw a little more light upon this. Does it not raise a very big question? I do not pretend to understand it thoroughly. We say the standard unit of value which hither...More Button

The assumption is that there will be a gold basis for British currency, and that there is a certain standard unit of value in gold behind the British currency. I think that is right, but if the Briti...More Button

I would like more light on this. The Minister has been very ungenerous in his explanation why the words should be deleted now. As originally drafted, the section included counterfeit and light coins....More Button

There is a question of risk of detection. If they are not prohibited there is a bigger possibility of light coins being in circulation. I take it that this Act of 1876 did prohibit the importation o...More Button

I hope the Minister will go a little further than he has gone. He is prepared to meet the Deputy in respect of the banks carrying on business in the Saorstát, but, as it has been hinted at, some of t...More Button

I do not know whether the Minister has given any attention to a question which may arise in this connection. If important matters arise which are critical and the Chairman has a casting vote, accordi...More Button

Sub-section (1) states that the Commission may, by rules or otherwise, as it thinks fit, regulate its own procedure but we are providing that the one thing it may not regulate is the exercise of the c...More Button

Will the Minister also take into account that this is one of the matters which should not be decided by the casting vote of the Chairman? Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.More Button

The point I want to have made clear is: What is the actual maximum cash value of this concession over and above what was recommended by the Currency Commission? As I read the Currency Commission's re...More Button
