Seanad Éireann díospóireacht -
Wednesday, 19 Feb 1930

Vol. 13 No. 10

Volunteer Reserve.

Motion by Senator Johnson (resumed).
"That the Seanad disapproves of the procedure adopted by the Minister for Defence in the formation of a Volunteer Reserve as being an abuse of the power of the Minister and an encroachment upon the authority of the Oireachtas."

I do not know whether we should have this debate in the absence of the Minister for Defence.

As the Minister for Defence is engaged in the Dáil in connection with the Second Reading of the Defence Forces (Temporary Provisions) Bill he asked me to request the Seanad to postpone the discussion on this motion.

Debate on the motion postponed until Wednesday, 26th February.

The Seanad adjourned at 3.40 p.m. until 3 o'clock Wednesday, 26th February.
