§ MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY
called attention very briefly to the subject of Intermediate Education in Ireland, and urged upon the Government the necessity of dealing with it without delay.
§ SIR MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH
admitted the urgency of the question, and added that it had occupied the attention of the Government. He could not at that late hour enter into details, or state what the views of the Government were upon it; but he hoped that a scheme to deal with the subject would be one of the first proposals which he should bring before Parliament in the next Session.
§ Original Motion, by leave, withdrawn.
§ Committee deferred till Monday next.
