Vol. 56 No. 2

In Committee on Finance. - Vote 27—Haulbowline Dockyard.

I move:—

Go ndeontar suim ná raghaidh thar £5,085 chun slánuithe na suime is gá chun íoctha an Mhuirir a thiocfaidh chun bheith iníoctha i rith na bliana dar críoch an 31adh lá de Mhárta, 1936, chun Costaisí i dtaobh Longlainne Inis Sionnach.

That a sum not exceeding £5,085 be granted to complete the sum necessary to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1936, for Expenses in connection with Haulbowline Dockyard.

In connection with this Vote there is an increase of £2,190 which is largely made up of two items: one is part provision towards a new water main. The water main between the island and the mainland is worn out and has to be renewed. There is provision of about £340 this year for that purpose. There is also the cost of the reconstruction of the jetty at Cobh running into about £2,650. The sundry savings against that leave a net increase of £2,190.

Vote put and agreed to.
