Does the Minister recollect that in the Siemens-Schuckert estimates and in the Experts' Report presented to the Dáil there were estimates given of the number of persons who would be employed?More Button

CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - QUESTION ON THE ADJOURNMENT.

I beg to give notice that I shall raise this matter on the adjournment.More Button

The matter of the effect of the answer that the Minister has given regarding the proportion of costs estimated as wages upon the total costs of the scheme and the effect upon the working out of the sc...More Button

CEISTEANNA—QUESTIONS. ORAL ANSWERS. - DISTRESS IN CLARE.

Is that the evidence that the Minister forms his judgment upon?More Button

Will the Minister give us the remaining part?More Button

THE BOUNDARY QUESTION.

Before we proceed to the business, could any Minister give us any information as to the situation arising out of the expected Report of the Boundary Commission?More Button

SHOP HOURS (DRAPERY TRADES, DUBLIN AND DISTRICTS) (AMENDMENT) BILL. - DAIL IN COMMITTEE.

I oppose this amendment because I think the notice is not sufficiently detailed. I think the notification that an appointment has been made or that a certificate has been issued, in accordance with c...More Button

The Minister will, no doubt, make his reply in accordance with the statements he has already made: that there is no intention to penalise women, but that it is desirable to make provision so that, if ...More Button

I am quite sure he will make a good first of it, at any rate.More Button

SHOP HOURS (DRAPERY TRADES, DUBLIN AND DISTRICTS) (AMENDMENT) BILL. - LOCAL ELECTIONS POSTPONEMENT BILL, 1925—SECOND STAGE.

The Minister, of course, has his power under the rules, but to treat a Bill of this kind at this stage as an emergency Bill and rush it through will be opposed to the utmost. The question of the princ...More Button

SHOP HOURS (DRAPERY TRADES, DUBLIN AND DISTRICTS) (AMENDMENT) BILL. - ADJOURNMENT DEBATE—SHANNON SCHEME FINANCES.

I asked certain questions of the Minister for Industry and Commerce respecting the finances of the Shannon scheme, the contract price and the cost of wages proportion. He gave certain answers, and, f...More Button

I was deducing also that the original proportion was probably 33? per cent., or somewhere about that figure, and the balance making up the 36 per cent. was due to an increase as recommended by the exp...More Button

I am following on: “The number of workmen has been calculated on the basis of the normal output of our workers”—that is the German workers. “Should this output, contrary to our expectations, not be a...More Button

It is dealing with the equipment, dwelling-houses and canteens.More Button

It was the only information placed before us from Messrs. Siemens-Schuckert as to the number of men that would be required.More Button

It is calculated that about two-thirds of the workmen employed could be accommodated in huts while the remainder could be lodged in the neighbouring towns and villages. The number of workmen employed,...More Button

The Minister mentioned 3,000 workers, but——More Button

I am speaking of the figures in the estimate of Siemens-Schuckert and the report of the experts.More Button

There is nothing very incidental in the experts' report. That estimate shows that during the period of construction about 2,500 workers would be employed.More Button

Well, perhaps 2,501 or 2,499.More Button

Perhaps!More Button

The Minister can give us that information and he can help us out in his calculation as much as possible. The figures that are placed before the Dáil from these two sources, Siemens-Schuckert in the f...More Button

If the Minister wishes, I will go on for a few minutes, and that will give him an opportunity of replying another time.More Button

I beg your pardon, I deliberately, and with great care, read the two calculations—the calculation on the basis of the 2,100 and the calculations on the basis of the 2,500.More Button

I said it was——More Button

We will see to that.More Button

I left a margin of £276,000.More Button
