HC Deb 04 May 1903 vol 121 cc1200-1
MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what steps, if any, have been taken to provide suitable dwelling-house accommodation for the students attending Marlborough Street Training College, Dublin, and if it is intended to place the Government College on an equality in this respect with the denominational training colleges in Dublin and other parts of Ireland.

In putting the Question the hon. Member congratulated the right hon. Gentleman on his recovery from illness.


The Government has had under consideration an application from the Commissioners for a grant of £50,000, or an annuity of £2,500 for thirty-five years, for the provision of suitable accommodation for the students of this college. It has not been found practicable to place so considerable a charge upon the Estimates. The proposal, however, will be further considered in relation to other demands in respect to education in Ireland.
