MR. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Board of Works have not provided the necessary temporary additional accommodation in certain departments of the Royal College of Science, Dublin, and that the department of physics is inconvenienced by the want of accommodation, although there is plenty of space available; and whether it is intended to carry out the recommendation to put up a shed to provide room for apparatus and other requisites.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (MR. G. W. BALFOUR,) Leeds, Central
The subject of providing temporary additional accommodation for the physical laboratory of the Royal College of Science is under the consideration of the Board of Works and the Department of Agriculture. There is no foundation for the suggestion that the Board of Works have failed to provide additional temporary accommodation in other departments of the institution; no 941 proposal to this effect has been made to the Board.
