§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)
To ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he will say whether the revised scale of estimates under Plan VI. A for the building of national schools in Ireland is yet completed; and, if so, whether managers who have erected schools which exceeded the estimate in consequence of increase of cost of labour and materials will be entitled to any further grants in respect of their outlay.
(Answered by Mr. Hayes Fisher.) No revision of estimates of cost of national schools has yet been arrived at. If it be decided to increase the estimates of cost it is contemplated that the new scale will be prospective and will not increase the amount of grant in cases where schools have been built in the past.
