CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - APPEAL AGAINST INCOME TAX ASSESSMENT.

asked the Minister for Finance whether he is aware that Mr. B.P. Fitzgerald was assessed for the years 1924-25 and 1925-26 in respect of income tax; that Mr. Fitzgerald did not appeal against these assessments within the statutory period owing to illness; and that as a result he was unable to submit statements as to his income; and whether, in view of the hardship resulting from the enforcement of the assessments, an appeal in the matter will be entertained from Mr. B.P. Fitzgerald.

If the Deputy will give me the full name and address of the Mr. Fitzgerald referred to in the question, I will have inquiries made.
