Abstract: The present discussion on the Irish population problem has been arranged on the invitation of the Director of Broadcasting by the Statistical and Social Inquiry Society of Ireland. This Society which in a few years will celebrate its centenary has provided in the past and continues in an increasing degree still to provide opportunities for the examination and discussion in a scientific and non-partisan spirit of problems of social interest in Ireland. Membership is not in the least restricted to experts and the Society welcomes all who from any standpoint take an interest in its work. The date of the Society's foundation, 1847, the year of the Famine, marks a crucial point in the trend of Irish population and makes it appropriate that the first broadcast of proceedings of the Society should relate to this subject which under different aspects to-day remains a leading social problem of the country.
Description: On April, 1937, the following discussion on the Population Problem was broadcast front Radio Eireann under the auspices of the Society. The President, Mr. Joseph Brennan, acted as Chairman. Others taking part were Dr. E. C. Geary, Professor G. A. Duncan, Professor George O'Brien and Mr. Stanley Lyon, Director of Statistics Branch, Department of Industry and Commerce.
