§ Mr PATRICK WHITE
asked the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture (Ireland) whether the purpose for which it is sought to levy money under the Diseases of Animals (Ireland) Bill 953W introduced this Session is in the case of Great Britain to be provided for in future out of moneys provided by Parliament; whether his attention has been called to a statement of the Chancellor of the Exchequer to this effect; and, if so, whether he will seek for equal treatment for Ireland?954W
§ Mr. BIRRELL
A sum of £71,300 is one of the items in the list of Grants in relief of local rates for which Ireland is getting an equivalent Grant under the Budget proposals. The amount of the equivalent Grant will be added to the Transferred Sum, and will, therefore, be at the disposal of the Irish Parliament.
