Mr. L'Estrange: Information on Gerald L'Estrange Zoom on Gerald L'Estrange asked the Minister for Local Government if he is aware that thousands of ratepayers, especially small farmers and businessmen, are finding it impossible to pay the present high rates demanded; and if he will state, in view of the Taoiseach's statement of 22nd March, 1965 at Ballyshannon, what relief he has in mind for (a) rural ratepayers and (b) urban ratepayers.

[26]Mr. P. Brennan: Information on Patrick Brennan Zoom on Patrick Brennan I propose, with your permission, a Cheann Comhairle, to take Questions Nos. 34 and 35 together.

Mr. L'Estrange: Information on Gerald L'Estrange Zoom on Gerald L'Estrange Has the Parliamentary Secretary anything to add to or take from the Taoiseach's statement of last year, or was that only a gimmick to win votes at the general election? “Let Lemass lead on”.
