Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Avoca (Wicklow) Unemployment.
Mr. M.J. O'Higgins Mr. M.J. O'Higgins
31. Mr. M.J. O'Higgins asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce if, in view of the serious unemployment in the Avoca area, County Wicklow, he will investigate urgently the question of putting on foot a project which will absorb the unemployed in the area.
Mr. J. Lynch Mr. J. Lynch
Mr. J. Lynch: I assume that the question relates to projects for the establishment of new industries. As the Deputy will appreciate the establishment of industries is primarily a matter for private enterprise and local initiative. The Deputy may take it that any sound proposals that may be formulated by local or other interests for the establishment of industries in the Avoca area will be given every possible encouragement and assistance by me.
The Deputy will, of course, be aware of my reply to a question on  31st October, 1962, regarding employment to be provided by the nitrogenous fertiliser factory at Arklow.
