Considerable attention is now being given in Ireland to the development
of an incomes policy for the community. There is general agreement
that such a policy should apply to all incomes—not only to wages
and salaries but also to dividends, rents, professional earnings and to
earnings from self-employment. In the self-employed category, by far
the most important group is that of farmers and their families. At
present there are 270,000 farm family members engaged in agriculture
(plus 36,000 hired workers) and the application of an incomes policy
to their incomes is as important as it is to the other income groups.
