I move:—

Go ndeontar suim Bhreise ná raghaidh thar £10 chun íoctha an Mhuirir a thiocfaidh chun bheith iníoctha i rith na bliana dar críoch an 31adh lá de Mhárta, 1938, chun Deontaisí do Príomh-Scoileanna agus do Choláistí (8 Edw. VII, c. 38; Uimh. 42 de 1923; Uimh. 32 de 1926; Uimh. 35 de 1929; agus Uimh. 27 de 1934).

That a Supplementary sum not exceeding £10 be granted to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending 31st March, 1938, for grants to Universities and Colleges (8 Edw. VII, c. 38; No. 42 of 1923; No. 32 of 1926; No. 35 of 1929; and No. 27 of 1934).

The purpose of this Supplementary Estimate is to provide under the University College, Galway, Act, 1929, a further sum of £500, being the balance of the £2,000 which, under that Act, we were entitled to grant to Galway University. It is also intended to cover a further small grant of £80 towards the pensionability of certain lectureships which have been established under the Act of 1929.

£80 is for a lecturer?

No, pensionability. It is a grant towards making those lectureships pensionable.

Vote agreed to and reported.
