Supplementary Estimate, 1959-60—Leave to Introduce.

When is it proposed to circulate the Estimate?More Button

The Taoiseach will not take it as inappropriate if I observe that the appearance of Supplementary Estimates, occurring week after week at such an early stage of the year, is a rather alarming feature.More Button

Health Authorities Bill, 1959—Second Stage (Resumed).

I do not propose to delay the House for long, but I think we should not lose sight of certain fundamental principles relevant to this Bill. I think Deputy Healy is right when he says that the paramou...More Button

That is scarcely a fair description of the debate.More Button

Is the Minister sure of what he is saying?More Button

I am virtually certain it was never accepted by the Minister's predecessor.More Button

The proposal was made but I do not think he approved it.More Button

You will judge men's hearts but finally they will be judged by their actions.More Button

The Minister will understand that it is on this Bill we have to vote, and not on what the Minister has now said. Question put. The Dáil divided: Tá, 63; Níl, 36. TáMore Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Bill-posting and Painting of Slogans.

Is it necessary for the Minister to be grossly rude in answering questions?More Button

If the supplementary question goes beyond the ambit of the original question it is quite possible to say that in a way that is not disagreeable. It is very often not what you are saying but the way y...More Button

Ministers carry a certain additional responsibility to set an example in that matter.More Button

Business of Dáil.

May I suggest that the Deputy might be informed that if he wishes, he can consult the machinery of the House? I am sure the Leas-Cheann Comhairle would afford him the assistance he requires.More Button

Petroleum and Other Minerals Development Bill, 1959—Second Stage (Resumed).

I must say that what Deputy Norton said in connection with this Bill requires to be borne in mind. It is a fact that with the introduction of the Petroleum and other Minerals Development Bill, a wholl...More Button

It might be possible for them to deposit some kind of bond, if they did not want to put down money.More Button

That is a six mark question.More Button

Committee on Finance. - Vote 50—Industry and Commerce.

£6¼ million is a lot of money. I understand it is hoped to provide employment for a little over 4,000 people.More Button

Workers?More Button

I wonder how many of these are men and how many women?More Button

It works out at a very substantial capital investment per individual employed and at this stage one can only express the hope that all these enterprises will thrive and prosper. I am concerned to affo...More Button

Because I understood that under An Foras Tionscal it was not proposed to give new entrants to an existing local industry large Government grants to knock their competitors out of business. It would a...More Button

Committee on Finance. - Shannon Free Airport Development Company Limited Bill, 1959—Money Resolution.

Would the Minister take occasion to tell us now are there any factories operating in the Free Airport development area? Is there anything happening there? What exactly is the position? We are givin...More Button

Would the Minister think this an appropriate moment to tell us what actually is going on there?More Button

Committee on Finance. - Shannon Free Airport Development Company Limited Bill, 1959—Committee and Final Stages.

Why is this company being authorised to continue to give grants when we have just passed an Act of Parliament to ensure that all industrial grants will be gathered into An Foras Tionscal? Why wipe ou...More Button

I would not bring in the debentures.More Button

Did I understand Section 2 to mean that the aggregate amount of grants under this section would not exceed £500,000?More Button

Perhaps the Minister would elaborate on this section?More Button

Have we actually passed the stage at which we even pretend?More Button

British Steel Industries is an example. If the Minister was fortunate enough to have invested his savings in it or if he had been one of the purchasers when the British Government sold it he would ha...More Button

This puzzles me. The Taoiseach, just before he became Taoiseach, came in here and exhorted us to agree with him that all this business of making grants ought to be concentrated in one authority. Afte...More Button

The Minister will want to get the Shannon Free Airport Development Company Limited to collaborate not with the Industrial Development Authority but with An Foras Tionscal. Why have we again separated...More Button

The House will now see the evils which can arise. We divided up the Department of Industry and Commerce. We now have a Minister for Transport and Power and we also have a Minister for Industry and C...More Button

Once it starts, there is the tendency to go on dividing. Question put and agreed to. Sections 12 and 13 agreed to. Schedule and Title agreed to. Bill reported without amendment, received for final con...More Button
