HC Deb 22 July 1902 vol 111 cc909-10
MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the average annual cost per pupil in the female training colleges in Kildare Street and in Baggot Street, Dublin, respectively; and, seeing that it would be impossible, without serious loss, for these colleges to pay interest and sinking fund on their loans, will he state on what grounds it is proposed for the training colleges at Limerick, Belfast, and Waterford to defray this charge.


I am not yet in a position to give the information desired in the first part of the Question. When received, I will communicate it to the hon. Member. In respect to the second part of the Question, I have nothing to add to my reply to the similar inquiry of the 24th June.†

MR. JOHN REDMOND (Waterford)

was understood to ask whether institutions of enormous importance such us these were to be ruined by the refusal of a paltry sum of £3,000. †See (4) Debates, eix., 1518.


I must ask for notice of that Question. It is a matter of arrangement with the Treasury.
