MINISTERIAL MOTIONS. - PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION CAMPAIGN IN U.S.A.

The ACTING-PRESIDENT moved:

“That the decision of the Ministry authorising the President to expend at his discretion such sum not exceeding $500,000 as he may require in connection with the election campaign for the Presidency of the United States of America, be and is hereby ratified.”

He explained that the President expended no monies until he had first received authority from the Cabinet to do so. He asked for permission to apply funds to the purpose stated and now the Dail was asked to ratify the Cabinet's action in authorising him to do so.

The motion was seconded by the MINISTER FOR DEFENCE, and put and carried.
