A short discussion took place on the Report, as a result of which it was decided, on the motion of M.P. COLLIVET (Limerick City), seconded by J. O'DOHERTY (Donegal N.), that copies of the Report should be circulated to all Comhairli Ceanntair of Sinn Fein, with a request that a summary of same be supplied to the local Press.
