I have to inform the Deputy, in the first place, that neither German nor Polish goods of any kind enjoy preferential treatment on entry into the Saorstát. The possibility of securing more favourable ...More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Industrial Firms.

The Census of Production Reports published by my Department must be regarded as the normal source of information relating to the number of concerns and the number of persons employed in any industry, ...More Button

So far as brush-making is concerned, the figures for 1931 included concerns and persons employed in the making of brush stocks. These firms and persons were not included in the 1933 figures. In the ...More Button
