Vol. 68 No. 17

Tourist Traffic Bill, 1970: Committee and Final Stages.

Sections 1 to 5, inclusive, agreed to.
Question proposed: "That section 6 stand part of the Bill."

I asked the Minister on the Second Stage if he proposed in his reply to give to the House the type of rents being charged for the cottage accommodation.

There are various types of cottages. The rentals range from £20 a week for April for type A, £19 for type B and type C; £25 for type A in May and £24 for type B and type C; £31 10s for type A in June and £30 for type B and type C. Then, in July and August, type A is £38 and type B and type C, £36. In September, type A is £31 10s. and type B and C, £30. If Senator Boland wants a cottage of type A during the winter period from October to April he can have one of type B and C for £12 or type A for £15.

What is the difference in types?

A type A cottage accommodates eight persons, type B accommodates seven, and type C accommodates six.

Why are the rates for type B and type C the same, when there is a difference in the accommodation? However it does not matter.

That is right.

Question put and agreed to.
Section 7 agreed to.
Title agreed to.
Bill reported without amendment, received for final consideration and passed.
