Risteárd Ua Maolchatha asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce whether he is aware that while the average price per ton of cement imported into the Free State during the month of January was only 8d. more than the average price per ton of cement imported during the months of October and November, 1935, persons in the City of Dublin on the 3rd February were charged 44/- per ton for cement similar to that purchased by them for 38/- on the 26th November last, and whether he is aware of any reason why the retail cost of cement should have risen by 6/- a ton during a period in which the import cost had only risen by 8d. a ton, and, if so, if he will state what are these reasons, and, if not, whether he proposes to make any inquiry into the matter and take any action.

Mr. Lemass: If the Deputy will repeat the question on Wednesday, 4th March, I will endeavour to let him have the information asked for.
