I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether any provision has been made in the Estimates to increase the endowment for technical education generally and higher scientific technical training in Ireland; and, whether the Government will introduce a Bill dealing with the whole subject?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
Legislation would be necessary for the purpose indicated in the hon. Gentleman's Question. The Government cannot undertake to deal with the subject of general technical education this Session.
