§ MR. O'MARA
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will include in Cd. 2854 the estimated annual value of the different items of agricultural produce dealt with therein; and whether he can give an estimate what the total value of the net produce of the crops was for the year 1905 in Ireland.
The estimated annual value of the principal Irish crops in 1905 will be shown, in accordance with the existing practice, in the detailed annual report on agricultural statistics. A provisional estimate, however, will beinserted next year in the return for 1906 corresponding to Cd. 2854. The value of the principal Irish crops in 1905 may, in the opinion of the Department of Agriculture, be estimated at 30½ millions sterling.
