§ (7.) £22,435, to complete the sum for the Public Works Office, Ireland.
§ MAJOR NOLAN
asked what action the Government were going to take on the Report of the Committee in relation to Public Works in Ireland?
§ SIR HENRY SELWIN-IBBETSON
said, the hon. and gallant Member would remember that the Report which had just been issued recommended a variety of changes in the Office, and pointed out certain defects. The effect of the Report would mean an entire reorganization of the Department, and a work of such magnitude could not have been decided on in a few days since the Report had been issued. He had no doubt that important changes would be made in the organization of the Department; but he did not think he could pledge himself more than that, beyond saying that a Report so valuable would be sure to be acted on in the course of next year.
§ Vote agreed to.
