asked the Minister for Transport and Power the total cost to C.I.E. of fifteen diesel-electric locomotives purchased in the United States of America.
Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Cost of Diesel-electric Locomotives.
The total cost of these locomotives was £776,600 approximately.
Does the Minister seriously suggest that he does not propose to hold an inquiry into the expenditure of the best part of £1,000,000 on these diesel electric locomotives which are at present being driven only in one direction?
The Deputy misunderstands the position.
Is it not a fact that if Dr. Andrews spent his time looking after these matters instead of quarrelling with trade unions he would not have made this blunder?
