22.

asked the Minister for Social Welfare the number of persons of all categories registered at the employment exchanges in South Tipperary at the most recent date for which figures are available and the figures at the same date for each of the past ten years.

With the permission of the Ceann Comhairle I propose, as the reply is in the form of a tabular statement, to circulate it with the Official Report.
