Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Employment in Saorstát Industry.

Particulars of employment have not been collected in the precise form to enable the information required by the Deputy to be given. In addition, a number of returns are still outstanding for most of t...More Button

Private Business. - Finance Bill, 1934—Committee Stage (Resumed).

It was not intended that the duty in reference No. 4 should apply to boilers which were an integral part of a range or grate, and I understand that the reference was so interpreted by the Revenue Comm...More Button
