I beg to move:—
In Section 1, page 2, after the word "in" in line 15, to insert the words "or with."
I am sorry the President would not accept my amendment, with the result that I have to divide the Dáil on it. The object of this amendment is to cover the case of Volunteers who were on active service in 1916, right through the Black and Tan period, and who were mobilised and turned into the city barracks where they did duty for a month or two. When the recruits came in these men were sent back to their areas and worked there as intelligence officers. It is very unfair that they are to be cut out of the benefits of the Bill.
