To ask the Minister for Defence whether he is aware that a sum of close on £300 is due by the Army Authorities to Thomas Brennan and Son, Motor Agents, Collooney, Co. Sligo, for goods supplied, hire of cars, etc., during the period April to July, 1922, that repeated applications have been made for payment, and if he will give instructions to have this long overdue account attended to immediately.

I appear to have received only a claim amounting to £229 in respect of the hiring of a motor car. Local enquiries are, however, being made, and the matter will receive attention.
