§ COLONEL COLTHURST
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether he will favourably consider a Bill to do away with the restriction of loans for teachers' residences in Ireland to schools vested before 1879?
§ MR. COURTNEY
This matter has not previously been brought under my notice; but I understand my hon. and gallant Friend to allude to the fact that teachers' residences attached to schools vested since May 1, 1879, can only receive aid from the State in the shape of a free grant of £100 instead of a loan of £200. Primâ facie this seems a large and sufficient measure of State aid, and I can express no opinion in favour of a change until I have seen proposals for it in a formal shape.
