CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. - MOTOR AND CYCLING TRAFFIC. PROHIBITION UNDER BRITISH REGIME.

To ask the Minister for Finance if he is in a position to give any information as to the claims for compensation made by the Motor and Cycling Trade, owing to the prohibition of Motor and Cycle traffic under the British regime.

Claims made by the Motor and Cycling Trade in respect of the pre-truce period may be made to the Compensation Commission in so far as the facts fall within the terms of reference of that body. As regards cases outside those terms of reference but within the jurisdiction of the War Compensation Court, the Government are endeavouring to have sittings of that Court arranged to be held in this country. They are still in communication with the British Government on this point.
