asked the Minister for Finance what sums of money have been paid in respect of the rebuilding of the Abbey Theatre under the Funds of Suitors Act to date.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Rebuilding of Abbey Theatre.
I would refer to the Deputy to the answer I gave to a similar question on 5th December, 1961. The only further payment since that date was a sum of £1,084 7s. 11d. made on the 6th December, 1961, being the final payment under the demolition contract (£963 3s. 7d.) and fees to the quantity surveyor (£121 4s. 4d.). This makes a total to date of £18,104 4s. 9d.
