I beg to move that the Estimate of £100,000 which will be required in the year ending 31st March, 1923, to defray the salaries and expenses of additional and unforeseen services, be granted.
This Vote is exactly as it is described. There are certain matters in which any Ministry might be committed at a given moment, and on which it might be unable to discharge its functions if some such Vote as this were not put on. One particular case had already arisen, and in this case a Supplementary Estimate will be placed before the Dáil. I take it that in future it will not be necessary to have an Estimate like this, but owing to the circumstances of the times it was necessary in this case.
