HC Deb 05 March 1891 vol 351 cc250-1
MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)

I beg to postpone until Monday the question of which I have given notice to ask the Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether any grants were made towards technical instruction in Ireland daring the year 1890 under the Technical Instruction Act of 1889; if so, for what particular branches of such instruction these grants were made, and what was the total amount in each branch; whether any steps have been taken to bring the facilities thus offered under the notice of those in Ireland for whom they were intended; if so, of what nature; if no such steps have been taken whether he will see what can be done in this direction; what was the total amount of grants for handicrafts or manual instruction in national schools in Ireland during the year 1890; and how many schools shared in these grants?
