REPORTS AND MINISTERIAL MOTIONS. - IRISH REPUBLICAN PRISONERS' DEPENDANTS' FUND.

The MINISTER FOR FINANCE moved:
"That the sum of £1,000 be granted to the Irish Prisoners' Dependants' Fund."
He said that there were at the present time in the country men "on the run" through whose efforts the present situation had in great part been made possible. Under the Constitution of the Fund the Committee in charge of it could not deal with such.
It was now proposed that the Dail should make a grant of £1,000 to be applied to these cases.
The motion was seconded by EARNAN DE BLAGHD (Monaghan North) and put and agreed to.
