§ MR. LEWIS
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether any communications, in the nature of advice or instructions, has passed between the Lords of the Treasury and the Commissioners of National Education in Ireland, as to the future application of that portion of the Vote in Supply for National Education hitherto used in support of model schools, and suggesting less expenditure thereon in future, in order to have funds to carry out certain intended arrangements for separate denominational training of teachers; and, if so, whether he will lay upon the Table a Copy of any such communications?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
Sir, the hon. Member refers to a Correspondence between the Lords of the Treasury and the Commissioners of National Education, which has not, as yet, been officially before the Irish Government. I am not, therefore, at present in a position to express any opinion as to whether it ought to be laid on the Table.
