Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - County Galway Compensation Payment.

[103] 13. Mr. Molloy asked the Minister for Finance why compensation of £180 offered to a person in County Galway (name supplied) in a letter dated 27th June, 1973, has not yet been paid.

Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Finance (Mr. Kenny): The offer of compensation in this case was made by letter on 6th February, 1974, but a reply was not received until 20th June, 1975.

Mr. Molloy: Was it paid?

Mr. Kenny: Payment of the £180 compensation is now in order and will be paid at once, so the Deputy should send out his letter immediately.

Mr. Molloy: The power of the question is great.
