I propose to discuss this evening some aspects of recent
Irish Finance which seem to me to be of great practical
importance, and to require earnest consideration on the
part, not only of those who interest themselves in economic
problems or take part in the administration of Ireland, but
also of every person, who as public man or private citizen,
dwells in or has to do with this country.
I do not intend to discuss whether Ireland is now entitled,
having regard to her relative resources, to be taxed on a lower
scale than Great Britain; or to consider whether the ability
of Ireland, as compared with Great Britain to bear the existing
pressure of Imperial Taxation, is in any way modified since
the Financial Relations Report. I propose rather to consider
tonight, some features of the latter-day methods of Imperial
Finance, and to suggest the desirability from the Irish point
of view of testing their soundness as applied in practice to
the Three Kingdoms.
