HC Deb 13 January 1913 vol 46 cc1775-6

(1) Pending the determination of the Transferred Sum by the Joint Exchequer Board, the Treasury may make such payments on account of that sum into the Irish Exchequer as the Joint Exchequer Board may direct.

(2) The Joint Exchequer Board may authorise the Lord Lieutenant to make such payments from the Irish Exchequer as may be necessary in order to provide for bringing this Act into operation, but no such authority shall be given after the expiration of a period of three months from the first meeting of the Irish Parliament.

Government Amendment made: In Subsection (1), after the word "Board" ["by the Joint Exchequer Board"], insert the words "for the first year in which the Transferred Sum is to be paid."—[Mr. Birrell.]
