Go dtugaidh an Dáil cead chun go dtabharfaí isteach na Meastacháin Nua agus Breise seo a leanas i gcóir seirbhíse na bliana dar críoch an 31adh lá de Mhárta, 1927:—
Vótanna a 43 (An Coimisiún Arachais Sláinte Náisiúnta), 61 (An Roinn Puist agus Telegrafa), 69 (Coimisiún na nDleacht).
That leave be given by the Dáil to introduce the following Additional and Supplementary Estimates for the service of the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1927:—
Votes Nos. 43 (National Health Insurance Commission), 61 (Department of Posts and Telegraphs), 69 (Tariff Commission).
The first two votes are token votes. For the National Health Insurance Commission a vote is asked for £10. That is to enable a sum of about £14,000 to be paid in respect of the grant in aid of contributions towards benefits. There have been additional amounts of benefits paid out by the societies beyond what was anticipated when the original estimate was introduced. It is not possible, as they are grants-in-aid, to transfer from another sub-head in the Vote, without bringing the matter before the Dáil.
In respect of the Posts and Telegraphs Vote, this estimate is introduced because certain premises and a building site in the City of Cork are being acquired for post office purposes. It was promised the Committee on Public Accounts that where a building or site involved an expenditure of more than £5,000, it would be separately brought to the notice of the Dáil. The third estimate is for a sum of £330 to meet the expenses of the Tariff Commission, under the Tariff Commission Act, until the end of the financial year.
