I ask for leave to introduce the following Supplementary Estimate:—
Go dtugaidh an Dáil cead chun go dtabharfaí isteach an Meastachán Breise seo leanas i gcóir seirbhíse na bliana dar críoch an 31adh lá de Mhárta, 1929, eadhon:—Vóta a 57 (Bóithre-Iarainn).
That leave be given by the Dáil to introduce the following Supplementary Estimate for the service of the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1929, viz.:—Vote 57 (Railways).
The purpose of this Supplementary Estimate is to give again this year the contribution which it has been found necessary, in recent years, to give to the Donegal railways. I am informed by the Minister for Industry and Commerce that, if we did not vote this Supplementary Estimate before the Recess there would be a danger that these railways might close down during that period.
