§ MR. AUSTIN (Limerick, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, as President of the Local Government Board, if he has received a resolution from the Board of Management of the Glin (county Limerick) district school, calling attention to the urgent necessity for a means of communication by steamboat to Glin, in order to secure a proper attendance of the members who are required to come from the different unions, and to give facility* See page 966 of this volume.1328 to the various unions for the transit of the children, as at present they have to travel long distances by road in open cars; and whether the proposed extension of the Government steamer service from Tarbert to Foynes could be arranged so that the steamer could call at Glin, where there is a deep-water quay, to meet this requirement.
§ MR. G. W. BALFOUR
The reply to the first paragraph is in the affirmative. The Commissioners of Public Works are already in communication with the board of management of the district school on the subject, and it is hoped that arrangements may be made to effect the object in view.
