Vol. 70 No. 2

Committee on Finance. - Vote 39—Public Record Office.

I move:—

Go ndeontar suim Bhreise ná raghaidh thar £63 chun íoctha an Mhuirir a thiocfaidh chun bheith iníoctha i rith na bliana dar críoch an 31adh lá de Mhárta, 1938, chun Tuarastail agus Costaisí Oifig na nAnnálacha Puiblí agus Coimeádaí na Stát-Pháipéar, Baile Atha Cliath. (30 agus 31 Vict., c. 70; 38 agus 39 Vict., c. 59, agus 39 agus 40 Vict., c. 58), agus chun Scríbhinní Stairiúla, etc., do cheannach.

That a Supplementary sum not exceeding £63 be granted to defray the charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending 31st March, 1938, for the salaries and Expenses of the Public Record Office and of the Keeper of State Papers, Dublin, (30 and 31 Vict., c. 70; 38 and 39 Vict., c. 59; and 39 and 40 Vict., c. 58), and for the purchase of Historical Documents, etc.

This is due to the rise in the cost of living bonus which accounts for the increase of £68 on the original Estimate. That is partly set off by a saving of £5 in incidental expenses making the sum required £63.

Is the cost of living going up?

This is the cost of living bonus.

We are postponing that discussion for another day.

Vote agreed to and reported.
