§ DR. TANNER (Cork Co., Mid)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, How soon will the National Library for Ireland be in a condition to receive the books; whether it will be ready to receive the overflow from the present cramped quarters early next year; and, whether the whole wing next Kildare Street will be completely finished, as suggested by Mr. Archer, the Librarian?
THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL (Sir WILLIAM HART DYNE) (Kent, Dartford)
(who replied) said: I am informed that the National Library will be in a condition to receive the books in October, 1889; and it is doubtful whether the overflow from the present Library can be placed in it before that date. The whole wing next Kildare Street will, I am informed, be completely finished.
