HC Deb 14 April 1896 vol 39 c896
MR. W. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland —(1) whether he will introduce this Session the Bill to grant at least £15,000 to found the Veterinary College in Dublin for Ireland; and (2) whether any annual endowment will be provided?


I hope to be able to deal with the matter referred to in the first part of this Question in the course of the present Session. The suggestion in the second paragraph stands on a different footing, and I can give no undertaking in regard to it.

*MR. W. JOHNSTON (Belfast, S.)

I wish to ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he can give us the assurance that this £15,000 will not be taken from intermediate education in Ireland?


No, Sir, I cannot give that assurance.
