CAPTAIN DONE LAN (Cork, E.)
On behalf of the hon. Member for Galway, Connemara (Mr. W. O'MALLEY), I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Executive contemplate increasing the powers of managers to admit more children to industrial schools, and to allow the capitation grant for such further increase?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
No such change as that suggested in the Question is contemplated in the general system. Every application for an increase in numbers is considered on its merits.
