I move:—

Go ndeontar suim Bhreise ná raghaidh thar £700 chun íoctha an Mhuirir a thiocfaidh chun bheith iníoctha i rith na bliana dar críoch an 31adh lá de Mhárta, 1938, chun Tuarastail agus Costaisí na Luachála Generálta agus na Suir bhéireachta Toerann (15 agus 16 Vict., c. 63; 17 Vict., c. 8 agus c. 17; 20 agus 21 Vict., c. 45; 22 agus 23 Vict., c. 8; 23 Vict., c. 4; 27 agus 28 Vict., c. 52; 37 agus 38 Vict., c. 70; 61 agus 62 Vict., c. 37; Uimh. 19 de 1923; Uimh. 3 de 1927; Uimh. 27 de 1930; Uimh. 27, Uimh. 47 agus Uimh. 55 de 1931; agus Uimh. 19 de 1932; Ordú Rialtais Aitiúla (Achtacháin d'Oiriúnú agus do chur i mBaint), 1925); maraon le Luacháil Diúité Estáit (10 Edw. 7, c. 8), etc.

That a Supplementary sum not exceeding £700 be granted to defray the Charge which will come in course of payment during the year ending 31st March, 1938, for the Salaries and Expenses of the General Valuation and Boundary Survey (15 and 16 Vict., c. 63; 17 Vict., c. 8 and c. 17; 20 and 21 Vict., c. 45; 22 and 23 Vict., c. 8; 23 Vict., c. 4; 27 and 28 Vict., c. 52; 37 and 38 Vict., c. 70; 61 and 62 Vict., c. 37; No. 19 of 1923; No. 3 of 1927; No. 27 of 1930; Nos. 27, 47 and 55 of 1931; and No. 19 of 1932; Local Government (Application and Adaptation of Enactments) Order, 1925); including Estate Duty Valuation (10 Edw. 7, c. 8), etc.

The need for this Supplementary Estimate arises, first, by reason of increased overtime provision in regard to railway appeals, an increase in the normal travelling expenses, and, to some extent, it is due to a rise in the cost of living index figure.

Would the Minister say if this includes any provision for the valuation which the Minister promised us some time ago in connection with the five-fourths——


I think the Minister will remember that that was one of those temporary measures which has now become more or less permanent. I should like to ask him if provision is made in this Estimate for that revaluation, or, if not, when he proposes to undertake it?

I cannot undertake the revaluation until the necessary legislation has been enacted by the Dáil. There is nothing in this Supplementary Estimate to cover that, but I do hope to be able to submit legislative proposals to the Dáil at a comparatively early date — sometime this year.

Vote agreed to and reported.
