§ MR. FIELD
I beg to ask the Vice-President of the Committee of Council on Education, whether he can state what progress has been made with the drift survey in Ireland, whether it is intended to commence the soil survey; and whether those operations will be under the Department of Agriculture in Ireland.
§ THE VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (Sir J. GORST,) Cambridge University
The drift survey, of the Dublin area, sheet No. 112, has been completed, and arrangements are being made for the publication of the results. It has been pointed out previously that the carrying out of a soil survey is not the function of the Geological Survey.
