Perhaps the most convenient approach to this subject is to assume
for the moment that our social problems are of so similar a nature to
those of Great Britain that their solution lies in the adoption of a
social security plan on lines identical with those of the Beveridge
proposals. On such an assumption the total cost of a social security
plan in Éire would be £44.75 million per annum as shown by the following
table, in which the figures for Éire have been computed on the
basis of the estimated relative populations of Éire and of Great Britain
in 1941. (Éire, 2-99 million; Great Britain, 46.565 million.)
