To ask the Minister for Defence what steps have been taken to settle the account due to Mr. Thomas Greene, of the Commercial Hotel, Kinvara, Co. Galway, for the hire of motor cars by the military authorities during the period October, 1921, to March, 1922; whether he is aware that, in accordance with the instructions inserted in the local Press, Mr. Greene submitted his account to the Quartermaster, 1st Western Division, at Ennis, and received a reply from that officer, dated 18th March, 1922, to the effect that same was passed on to the Transport officer; whether Mr. Greene has since made several applications for payment without avail; and if he will take steps to see that this long-standing account is immediately settled.

I have no information on the matter, but enquiries are being made.
