Fuaireas litir ó Theachta Sheán O Lideadha á rádh go bhfuil sé ag eirighe as an Dáil. I received a letter from Deputy Sean O Lideadh, Co. Clare, tendering his resignation from the Dáil on the ground that he has taken up a position in a non-partizan body in the public service —the Civic Guard, I think.

Is it proposed to take any action with regard to these resignations?

I am not aware. I suppose you mean with regard to filling the vacancies.

At present, at any rate, and until more normal conditions prevail, and also in view of the short period that must elapse between this and the General Election, we do not think it is necessary to fill these vacancies just now.
