285. Mr. Lemass asked the Minister for Industry and Commerce if he will set up a special section within his Department to deal with the technology sector of chemical production in view of the fact that a major part of the growth in employment has been attained in this field.
Minister for Industry and Commerce (Mr. Keating) Justin Keating
Minister for Industry and Commerce (Mr. Keating): I do not consider a special arrangement of the kind suggested to be necessary. I consider the combined resources of the Department, the Industrial Development Authority, the Institute for Industrial Research and Standards and the National Science Council to be adequate. As the Deputy has  pointed out, developments in this sector have resulted in a significant growth in employment. This has occurred under the existing arrangements.
