Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Deputy's Visit to Glasgow.

Arising out of the President's reply, I want to ask if he would have any objection to stating whether the individual in question has been or is in Government employment?More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Personation Offences.

Apart from the question of penalties, is it within the Minister's recollection that the Government was appealed to not very long ago to consider certain proposals other than penalties for the prevent...More Button

I hope the Minister for Local Government has managed to overhear the question.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Tralee Disturbances.

asked the Minister for Justice whether it is the intention of the Government to bring any charges of assault, wounding, possession of arms, intimidation, unlawful assembly, conspiracy or riot in conne...More Button

Not being satisfied with that answer, I desire to give notice that I will raise this matter to-night on the motion for the adjournment.More Button

Question on Adjournment.

I, therefore, shall raise on the adjournment this evening the subject-matter of Question No. 7, dealing with scenes at Tralee on October 6th.More Button

Unemployment Assistance Bill, 1933—Final Stages.

I must protest against the continual disorderly interruptions of the Minister for Industry and Commerce. He does not even trouble to rise from his seat to make his observations.More Button

Order.More Button

Might I ask the Minister a question? I only want to ask whether he is serious in the suggestion which he has just thrown out that there should be an alliance between the Government and the Opposition...More Button

Unemployment Insurance Bill, 1933—Final Stages.

Before the Minister concludes I should like to ask him a further question on the same lines as Deputy Dillon's, that is, whether he is able to give us figures with regard to unemployment insurance, an...More Button

The figures the Minister gave us with regard to insurance stamps and insurance books when they come to him do not differentiate between private and public employers?More Button

Is the Minister in a position to say that there has been any substantial increase in the number of unemployment insurance books issued to private employees?More Button

Rates on Agricultural Land (Relief) Bill, 1933—Second Stage.

I would like the Minister to be good enough to say exactly what he was referring to when he said that there was to be subsequent legislation to deal with the general question. What exactly did he mea...More Button

Does “the near future” mean before Christmas?More Button

Private Deputies' Business. - Adjournment Debate—Tralee Disturbances.

I asked the Minister for Justice to-day whether any prosecutions were pending in connection with the disturbances which took place at Tralee on October 6th, and if so whether such prosecutions would b...More Button

Well, whatever they were, they were able to run up——More Button

——and kick Deputy Lynch and deliver a number of blows on the person of General O'Duffy. Finally, one of them hit him on the head with some sort of instrument—I understand a hammer. Subsequent to tha...More Button

What they actually did, again at the behest of the attackers, was to search one of the attacked young men to see if he had any arms, and he had no arms. And so it goes on. An Phoblacht is allowed to...More Button

I submit, with great respect, that I am not going in any detail into what occurred in Limerick, and I was not going to mention any other places. I submit with great respect that the object of putting...More Button

I put it to the Government that intimidation is going to be absolutely rampant throughout the whole country if that sort of thing goes on, that the Civic Guards cannot be expected to perform their dut...More Button

Does anyone seriously suggest that as an analogy? The President was shouted down in this House one evening.More Button

Partly by members of my Party, and no one in the House regretted that, I venture to say, as deeply as I did. After all, one swallow does not make a summer, and it is not often the President is shout...More Button

Who said “rubbish”?More Button

Whoever said “rubbish” is either extremely ignorant or extremely dishonest.More Button

It takes very little investigation to find out the truth. I charge that people are being intimidated and kept away from the meetings of our Party. I charge that definitely, and I charge that the Civ...More Button
