Committee on Finance. - Hospitals Bill—Money Resolution.

I move:

That it is expedient to authorise the payment out of moneys provided by the Oireachtas of all expenses incurred in the execution of any Act of the present session to enable the Minister for Local Government and Public Health to make certain Orders in relation to the management, control and finance of certain hospitals.

Will the Parliamentary Secretary state the cost?

The cost will be practically nothing. There will be no exceptional cost in connection with this Bill. It is part of the ordinary machinery that goes with almost every Bill that passes through the House. There will be no exceptional costs in relation to this Bill.

The Parliamentary Secretary could not say what the unexceptional costs will be?

No, I could not.

Question agreed to. Money Resolution reported and agreed to.
