REPORTS AND MINISTERIAL MOTIONS. - CLOSING OF INTERNAL LOAN ISSUE OF £250,000.

The MINISTER FOR FINANCE moved:—
"That the present issue of the Loan be definitely and finally closed as from close of business on Saturday, 17th July, and after that date no further money be accepted for this issue of the Loan unless it can be shown that the application in respect of such payment was made prior to that date. Other than such amounts any money tendered to be credited to the Self-Determination Fund."
He desired to dispel the idea that the Loan Fund was going to drag on indefinitely. He believed by closing the issue on a fixed date, they could later on issue the balance of the loan with a greater prospect of success.
T. MACSUIBHNE (Cork Mid.) seconded the motion which was put and agreed to.
