§ MR. WOODALL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Government has considered the Report and recommendations of the Royal Commission on the Blind and Deaf; and whether it is proposed to legislate for Ireland as well as for Scotland and England; and, in such event, whether effect will be given to the suggestions of the Royal Commission in special reference to the needs and circumstances of Ireland?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The Government have before them the Report and recommendations of the Royal Commission referred to. They hope to propose legislation for Ireland on the subject so soon as the state of Public Business admits. In framing their proposals careful attention will be given to the suggestions of the Royal Commission.
