§ SIR T. ESMONDE (Kerry, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, will he explain why the Report of the Trustees of the National Library of Ireland is presented to the Department of Science and Art 833 in January, but does not reach the public until August; and if he will take steps to secure in future that this Report is published within a shorter time of its presentation?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
The Report is presented to Parliament by the Science and Art Department, and does not pass through my hands. Perhaps the honourable Baronet will address his Question to my right honourable Friend the Vice-President of the Council.
