HC Deb 04 March 1898 vol 54 c621

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council for Education (1) whether any steps have been taken with a view to arranging the transfer of the Irish work of the Science and Art Department to an Irish Department, as foreshadowed in Debate in Supply on 29th July last; and (2) whether he is aware that there is a strong desire in Ireland that the Science and Art Department should be relieved from this part of its responsibility?


The answer to the first Question is in the negative. As regards the second Question, I am not aware of such a desire; it has not been communicated to me.
