The task allotted to me in this symposium is to consider our Irish Social Services and the Beveridge Report from the ethical point of view. I can only suggest three lines of thought to the members of this Society: suggestions rather than dogmatic assertions. I pick out three moral values for examination and analysis: Liberty, Justice, Brotherliness. These three are actually three of the most specifically human values and possibly the three that most often come in conflict with other values, economic and material ones, for instance.
