MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN
On behalf of the hon. Member for the St. Patrick Division of Dublin, I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the library in Kildare Street is to he handed over to the New Irish Department; and, if so, whether adequate arrangements regarding finance and exports will be made.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. G. W. BALFOUR,) Leeds, Central
The library in Kildare Street is at present under the Science and Art Department, and under Section 2 of the Agriculture and Technical Instruction Bill would be transferred to the new Department. I am not sure that I clearly apprehend the last paragraph of the question, hut as it appears to refer to details of administration, it would he premature to make any statement on the subject.
