§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether any agreement has been come to between the Irish Government and the National Commissioners of Education with regard the Christian Brothers' Schools?
MR. JOHN MORLEY
I can only say, in answer to the hon. Member's question, that the correspondence between the Irish Government and the National Education Commissioners is 1047 rapidly approaching a final stage. By "rapidly" I mean that it will be concluded within a few days. Whether it will end in an agreement or not it would be premature for me to say.
§ Mr. W. REDMOND
asked whether the right hon. Gentleman was aware that there was a strong feeling in Ireland that this question ought to have been settled within the last two or three years.
MR. J. MORLEY
I am quite aware of the strong feeling. But it is much more easy to entertain a strong feeling than to find a means of settlement.
