MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN
On behalf of the honourable Member for the St. Patrick Division of Dublin, I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has asked 653 the Lord Lieutenant to add expert outsiders to the Vice-Regal Commission on Intermediate Education; and whether he can state what was the reply?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
I have been in communication with the Lord Lieutenant on this subject. In view of the fact that the subject of the inquiry is the system which the Commission have to administer, and not the procedure which they have adopted, His Excellency does not think that sufficient reason exists for adding any additional members to the Commission as now constituted.
