§ MR. BIGGAR
asked Mr. Solicitor General for Ireland, Whether the Government are now in a position to state what is the scheme for increased emoluments to the Convent National Schools, in Ireland, as promised last Session by the Member for Hawick Burghs?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. WALKER)
On the 18th July last my right hon. Friend the late Chief Secretary stated that this matter was under consideration, and would be dealt with before the Estimates for the coming year are framed. That promise 355 is kept in mind; but I am not at present in a position to make any more definite statement.
