Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Taoiseach's Correspondence.

With your permission, a Cheann Comhairle, I propose to take Questions Nos. 1 and 2 together. The preparation of replies to these Questions would involve the expenditure, by my staff, of an inordinate ...More Button

That is the same kind of question as the original one and I do not think it merits an answer.More Button

I do not believe that.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Membership of EEC.

I have no plans at present for any such meetings on a bilateral basis. It is expected that, later this year, there will be a meeting of the heads of State or Government of the present member States o...More Button

I presume that the Deputy has in mind meetings, for substantive discussions, with heads of Government rather than with heads of States. Following the reactivation of our application for membership of ...More Button

The position under the Anglo-Irish Free Trade Area Agreement is not affected by the signing by this country and the United Kingdom of the Treaty of Accession to the European Communities, which is subj...More Button

No. I can give the Deputy an example. The transitional period in relation to the elimination of tariffs on industrial goods as between us and the United Kingdom under the Anglo-Irish Free Trade Agree...More Button

With your permission, a Cheann Comhairle, I propose to take Questions Nos. 6 and 7 together.More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Ombudsman Policy.

As I stated in reply to Question No. 1 on the 18th May, 1971, the Public Services Organisation Review Group have recommended that a Commissioner for Administrative Justice should be attached to a Depa...More Button

Not necessarily, but the Department must first be set up in order to accommodate such an ombudsman if he is appointed.More Button

I suggest that we should leave it until the debate on that Bill which will be, as I indicated, during the present session.More Button

No, we have not indicated that. Many people seem to think that I am the ombudsman because I get so many appeals from so many sources and organisations. For the sake of self-preservation I should like...More Button

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Cost of Living.

I presume that the Deputy has in mind a telegram he addressed to me on the 14th, not the 15th, January last concerning the cost of living and related matters. I had a reply issued to that communicati...More Button

I have here a copy of a letter addressed to Dr. John F. O'Connell, TD, 64 Inchicore Road, Dublin 8, dated 17th January, 1972. I will say that it was a good political gimmick, a good imaginative one b...More Button

Send a telegram to the newspapers and then I get it a couple of days later! It was well publicised.More Button

A reply was sent to the Deputy. I quoted the date of the reply and I have a copy of the reply here in my file.More Button

It is proposed to take Nos. 23, 24 and 25 and to take Private Members' Business between 6 p.m. and 7.30 p.m.More Button
