HC Deb 19 August 1895 vol 36 c272
DR. KENNY (Dublin, College Green)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will take an early opportunity, next Session, to bring in a Bill to remedy the omission from the Irish Education Act of 1892 of powers to local authorities to levy a rate, or otherwise provide funds, to defray the expenses connected with the putting in force the compulsory clauses of that Act, which omission has hitherto rendered the Act inoperative?


An amending Bill in the direction indicated by the hon. Gentleman will no doubt be necessary, and I shall consider, during the Recess, the question of the propriety of introducing such a measure in the next Session of Parliament.
