Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Ringsend (Dublin) Power Station.

11.

asked the Minister for Transport and Power the names of the companies contracting for the jetty for the new power station at Ringsend, Dublin; and whether there is any arrangement to ensure that essential skilled workers involved are Irish.

The placing of contracts is a function of the ESB. It would in any event be contrary to established practice to disclose particulars of tenders received by the Board. I might add that the Board's conditions of contracts require their contractors to employ Irish labour to the fullest practicable extent.
