HC Deb 08 June 1891 vol 353 cc1829-30
MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury what is the cause of the prolonged delay in circulating the Loans to Schools and Training Colleges (Ireland) Bill, introduced on the 8th of April, and set down for Second Reading on Monday last?

wish also to ask what course is proposed to be taken in regard to the Hospitals Bill?


I can only promise the hon. Member to renew my efforts in regard to the Hospitals Bill. In regard to the question upon the Paper, I may say that there has been considerable discussion as to how best to carry out the undertaking of my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary for Ireland to the Denominational Training Colleges, and, therefore, in settling the exact terms of the Bill which he has introduced. The matter has now, however, been definitely settled, and I hope the Bill will be circulated in a few days.
