MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN
On behalf of the hon. Member for Dublin, St. Patrick, I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (1) whether it the intention of the Government to introduce this Session a Bill dealing with technical education in Ireland; and (2) whether it is the intention that the Science and Art Department thereof shall continue under the control of South Kensington or whether it will be included under Irish management.
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
I have already answered the second paragraph of the Question. With regard to the first paragraph, I must ask the hon. Member to wait for the statement of my right hon. Friend the First Lord of the Treasury.
