§ MR. POWER () Waterford, E.
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received copies of resolutions adopted by a branch of the Gaelic League at St. John's College, Waterford, making suggestions which they think should be embodied in the revised code of the primary education system in Ireland with the view of encouraging the study of the Irish language and of Irish history, and what steps the Government intend taking to meet the views of the members of the Gaelic League and of the Irish people on this subject.
§ MR. ATKINSON (for MR. G. W. BALFOUR)
The resolutions referred to have been received. It has already been stated that it is proposed to carry out a large measure of reform in the system of primary education in Ireland. Pending the explanation of the new scheme as a whole, it is not considered desirable to enter into details of the changes contemplated.
§ CAPTAIN DONELAN () Cork, E.
Would it not be possible to apply the system adopted in Wales to Ireland?
