Go ndeontar suim Bhreise ná raghaidh thar £5,950 chun íoctha an Mhuirir a thiocfaidh chun bheith iníoctha i rith na bliana dar críoch an 31adh lá de Mhárta, 1938, chun Rátaí no Síntiúisí in ionad Rátaí, etc., i dtaobh Maoine Rialtais, agus chun Síntiúisí mar chabhair chun íoctha Rátaí ar Aitreabhacha i seilbh Ionadaithe do Rialtaisí Coigríche.
That a Supplementary sum not exceeding £5,950 be granted to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending 31st March, 1938, for Rates or Contributions in lieu of Rates, etc., in respect of Government Property, and for Contributions towards Rates on Premises occupied by Representatives of external Governments.
The need for this Supplementary Estimate arises out of the fact as indicated here in Part III that first of all there has been an extension of premises in the occupation of several Government Departments notably, I think, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Defence and the Department of Local Government and Public Health; but, in addition, it also arises very largely by reason of the fact that an increase in the Dublin City rate took place after the Estimate had been prepared. It will be understood that this Estimate in general is based upon the rate current at the time at which the Estimate is prepared. The Estimate was prepared last year. In view of the desire to bring in the Budget at an early date, the Estimate was prepared before the rates for the city had been fixed and, accordingly, when, due to numerous causes, there was an increase of 1/- in the £ in the Dublin City rates the amount provided for payments in lieu of rates was insufficient.
