I feel very uneasy in opening a debate on a subject like this, a subject on which so much has been spoken and written by experts. It is impossible to discuss the subject without expressing views influenced in large part by the Report of Sir William Beveridge and the British White Paper on Employment Policy. There is no necessity for summarising the general conclusions of these documents, but I do think that we should see how far the principles illustrated in them are applicable to Irish conditions.
