Finance Bill, 1931—Second Stage.

Surely the Minister is going to give some explanation of Section 2, which proposes an amendment of Section 8 of the Finance Act of 1925; of Section 4 which introduces a new principle into the income t...More Button

And is still in the courts. The cases that Sections 2 and 4 deal with are still in the courts.More Button

And tramways?More Button

And gasworks?More Button

They have lost a lot of it recently.More Button

That is entirely wrong.More Button

The argument is that the subject is entitled to the benefit of the law as it stands, and if he is found right, and if the legal advisers to the Revenue Commissioners are found wrong, he is not going t...More Button

The Post Office.More Button

Would the Minister not put them in the same category as those other pensions?More Button

Adjournment Debate. - Closing of Co. Tipperary Creameries.
