§ MR. THOMAS O'DONNELL (Kerry, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has yet filled the vacancy created on the National Education Board by the resignation of His Grace the Archbishop of Dublin; and, if not, when he intends to do so; and will he explain the cause of the delay in filling up this vacancy.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
No, Sir; I am unable to name the date at which this vacancy will be filled. In reply to the last query, it is important that a vacancy in a representative body should be filled by appointing a person qualified to act for the interests represented by the person who has resigned. This is no easy matter.
§ MR. CLANCY
Does the right hon. Gentleman mean to suggest that this Board is a really representative body?
