HC Deb 31 January 1860 vol 156 c327

said, he would beg to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether the Government intend to introduce any measure this Session respecting Irish Education?


Sir, no change will be made in the system of education in Ireland without giving the House an opportunity of expressing an opinion upon it. The hon. Member is of course aware that the system of National Education in Ireland is not regulated by statute, and that there is no probability of the necessity for any legislation on the subject.
