Mr. N. Lemass: Information on Noel T. Lemass Zoom on Noel T. Lemass asked the Taoiseach what was the average national income produced per man hour in each of the last five years.

Mr. Carty: Information on Michael Carty Zoom on Michael Carty Data are not available for the aggregate number of manhours worked in the year since no such particulars are collected in respect of a number of sectors of the economy, for example the farming community. It is therefore not possible to give the information which the Deputy requires. However, with your permission, Sir, I propose to circulate in the Official Report a statement giving the Net Domestic Product per person at work for the years 1960 to 1964, this being the latest five year period for which this information is available.

Following is the statement:—

[5] Net Domestic Product per Person at Work.
