In Committee on Finance. - Vote 65—Army Pensions.

I move:

Go ndeontar suim ná raghaidh thar £151,684 chun slánuithe na suime is gá chun íoctha an Mhuirir a tiocfaidh chun bheith iníoctha i rith na bliana dar críoch an 31adh lá de Mhárta, 1934, chun Pinsean Créachta agus Mí-ábaltachta Pinsean Breise agus Pinsean Fear Pósta, Liúntaisi agus Aiscí (Uimh. 26 de 1923, Uimh. 12 de 1927 agus Uimh. 24 de 1932) agus chun Síntiúsi agus Costaisí iolardha ina dtaobh san agus chun Pinsean Seirbhíse Mileata d'íoc (Uimh. 48 de 1924), etc.

That a sum not exceeding £151,684 be granted to complete the sum necessary to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending on the 31st day of March, 1934, for Wound and Disability Pensions, Further Pensions and Married Pensions, Allowances and Gratuities (No. 26 of 1923, No. 12 of 1927 and No. 24 of 1932) and for sundry Contributions and Expenses in respect thereof and to pay Military Service Pensions (No. 48 of 1924), etc.

As the Government Party are obviously very tired and as the President of the Executive Council seems to prefer the effort to get to bed rather than that the affairs of this State should be fully discussed in this House, I beg to move that we report progress.

I am moving that the House do now adjourn.

The Chair is not accepting it.

Would it not be very good to give that Party opposite a night in which they might manage to get their courage up?

It would not need as much spirit as is required on the opposite benches.

Mr. Brodrick

That is a very ignorant remark from a Trinity student.

Vote put.
Division challenged. But there being no tellers against the motion, the motion declared carried.

What about the courage now, Deputy Fitzgerald-Kenney?

Deputy MacEntee can talk occasionally, but he wants to get to bed like the rest of his Party. The Deputy wants everybody gagged but himself.

Send out the search party.

There is more likelihood of the Deputy being sent out if he does not keep order.
