HC Deb 18 May 1899 vol 71 cc936-7
MR. AUSTIN (Limerick, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the importance of the Ireland and the distinctive character of the legislative and other condition relating to them respectively, the Government are prepared to make provision for the subject of technical instruction being separately dealt with by an officer of the Department, acting under the advice of the Board of Technical Instruction proposed to be created by the Bill.


If the honourable Member does not think that sufficient account has been taken in the Bill of the distinctive character of agricultural as contrasted with manufacturing industries, it will be open to him to raise the question on the Second Reading of the measure, or in Committee.
