SEAMUS BREATHNACH (Cork City) renewed notices of motion standing in his name as follows:—
SEAMUS BREATHNACH (Cork City) will move a resolution regarding the initiation of a propaganda campaign on a scale likely to affect the internal harmony of England.
SEAMUS BREATHNACH (Cork City) will move:
"Whereas Mr. de Valera has repeatedly publicly announced in America that the Constitution of the Irish Republic was based on the democratic foundations underlying the Constitution of the United States; and whereas the latter body provides for the consideration of all phases of legislative activity through the medium of Committees whose findings are subject only to the veto of the whole Parliament— a method already in vogue in County and Borough Councils in Ireland—and as no such machinery has as yet been set up within the Irish Republican Government, with the consequent practically entire exclusion of three-fourths of the people's representatives from effective work on the nation's behalf, we now resolve to bring this Constitution into harmony with the American idea of Committees elected by the whole House, and clothed with similar powers."
He withdrew his notice of motion regarding the prohibition of export of live pigs, and the notice of motion regarding emigration, these matters having been already dealt with in the course of the session.
