Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

The exact information requested by the Deputy is not available. The following table sets out the numbers of persons engaged in Irish-owned and foreign-owned enterprises in manufacturing for the years 2001 to 2018, and in services for 2008 to 2018, i.e. the years for which a breakdown between Irish-owned and foreign-owned is available for all size categories. The figures on manufacturing are taken from the Census of Industrial Production, excluding the mining, quarrying, electricity, gas, water and waste sectors. The services figures cover the sectors measured by the Annual Services Inquiry.
