Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Payments by Bord na Móna.
Mr. James Tully Mr. James Tully
Mr. James Tully asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce if he will state in respect of each of the years 1950 to 1955, inclusive, (a) the total amount paid in wages to workers employed by Bord na Móna in the production of turf, (b) the amount paid in compensation under the Workmen's Compensation Acts, and (c) the amount of compensation paid under common law actions.
Mr. Norton Mr. Norton
Mr. Norton: As the reply is in the form of a tabular statement, I propose with your permission, a Cheann Comhairle, to have it circulated with the Official Report.
Following is the statement:—
The information requested is available only in respect of financial years. The figures given for each item relate to all wage earners employed by the board as it would not be possible to give separate figures relating solely to the production of turf. The figures given for workmen's compensation claims payments and common law claims payments represent the total payments made in each year without regard to the dates on which the claims arose or the outstanding liability at the end of each year.
