FINANCE BILL, 1925—FIRST STAGE.

I beg to move the First Reading of the Finance Bill, 1925. The Title of the Bill is:—

A Bill to charge and impose certain duties of customs and inland revenue, including excise, to amend the law relating to customs and inland revenue, including excise, and to make further provisions in connection with finance.

Does Deputy Johnson want to know the particulars of this Bill?

I think I can recognise this Bill.

Question put and agreed to. Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 26th May.

Is the Minister aware that the Shannon Bill is going to be considered on Report next Tuesday? Will it have priority, and are we likely to be able to discuss both?

I will allow the Shannon Bill priority.
