CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. [ORAL ANSWERS.] - BALLINAMORE EX-CAPTAIN'S PAY.

TOMÁS MacARTÚIR

asked the Minister for Defence if he will state when it is intended to pay Mr. Michael Martin, of High Street, Ballinamore, Co. Leitrim, an ex-Captain of the National Army, his rank pay.

Mr. Martin is not entitled to rank pay, as his promotion was unauthorised and irregular, and cannot be approved.
