HC Deb 16 June 1899 vol 72 c1350

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 he can state when the sum allocated for the buildings of the Royal College of Science in Dublin will be available, and when the work will be commenced; whether the Department will be under Irish control; and, whether it is intended to he in connection with the proposed Board of Agriculture and Industries.


I cannot at present make any statement in reply to the first paragraph, except that I am not aware that any sum has been allocated for the purpose mentioned. If the Agriculture and Technical Instruction Bill becomes law, the Royal College of Science would be transferred to the new Department.
