And the lowest social services.More Button

Why do you boys not try to get together——More Button

Even the Central Statistics Office now is wrong.More Button

Check with the Tánaiste.More Button

The Parliamentary Secretary would be out of order if he did.More Button

Do not put him off his stroke.More Button

He said something he did not say?More Button

Thanks for reminding me. I nearly forgot that.More Button

It is also 4/10½d in Ireland.More Button

Yes.More Button

Many tourists will be tempted to go to the Northern part of Ireland rather than to the south, by-passing the Leas-Cheann Comhairle's county.More Button

It is the people's money.More Button

Committee on Finance. - Land Bill, 1963—Committee Stage (Resumed).

You would never get the houses built in three days.More Button

And I would agree with that.More Button
