I move for permission to bring in a Bill to apply a sum out of the Central Fund to the service of the year ending on the thirty-first day of March, one thousand nine hundred and twenty-four, and to appropriate the further supplies granted in this Session of the Oireachtas.

Agreed.

Mr. O'HIGGINS

I am sorry I was absent when Deputy Johnson raised the matter of Mr. Lemass. I would be glad to be permitted to intervene for three or four minutes on the adjournment later on.
