The Society welcomes the pioneer work which has been done by the
Government Statistical Department in ascertaining facts regarding the
volume of distribution, retail and wholesale, within the Saorstát. Retailers
and wholesalers perform a definite function; they are essential to
the manufacturer and to the public; the increased variety and volume
of goods to be distributed has made them more important now than
formerly. Knowledge of what takes place is socially of value, and the
census which was taken in 1933 deserves, and I am sure will receive,
very close examination. The comments, which I make upon it tonight
must be regarded as preliminary, but I think the subject matter is so
important that there should be an examination of it by the Society at
an early date, and since the work is of a pioneer character, comment
upon it must embrace a criticism of the form as well as an interpretation
which may be placed upon the matter.
