In laying before the members of this Society some considerations
regarding the very wide subject of "Economic Development
in Ireland," I have in view the situation created by the Agriculture
and Technical Instruction (Ireland) Act, 1899, which
comes into operation on April 1st, of the present year. The
object of that Act is to stimulate economic development in
Ireland. It creates a new Department of the Irish Government,
which is to concern itself with two distinct purposes: to assist
in developing—(1) the agriculture and fisheries, and certain,
rural industries; (2) technical education applied to any form of
local industry. On the one hand to enable the production of
greater wealth from the lands and waters of Ireland; and, on
the other hand, to improve the productive quality of Irish labour
by technical education applicable to any of the industries or the
circumstances of each district—these are the beneficent and
truly national purposes of an Act of Parliament which makes
an entirely new departure in the relations between the people
and the Government of this country.
