Abstract: The object of this Paper is to direct attention to certain important economic facts affecting our transport system, and provide where possible a statistical measurement of those facts. The treatment is neither comprehensive nor exhaustive, but a certain general conclusion may be stated. We must cut not only the dead wood, but the superfluous growth out of our luxuriant transport system, and prune it down to the measure of our economic requirements. It is for expert knowledge and practical statesmanship to elaborate the details of a satisfactory transport policy.
Description: Read before the Society on March 20, 1930. This lecture is delivered under the auspices of the Barrington trust (founded by the bequest of John Barrington Esq.) with the collaboration of the Journal of the Statistical and Social Inquiry of Ireland.
