§ MR. LONSDALE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant 664 of Ireland whether the technical instruction grants, which it has been decided to continue up to a limit of £7,000 per annum, will be regarded as distinct from the amount that will accrue to Ireland as an equivalent to the increased grants to England and Wales under the Education Bill.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WYNDHAM,) Dover
The decision to continue these grants up to a limit of £7,000 does not dispose of the Question put to me. The decision is definite, but not final, and may serve as a point of departure when we come to consider the question of the equivalent grant in all its bearings.
