§ MR. JOYCE (Limerick)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to (he Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the fact that the Department of Agriculture in Ireland have not in any way consulted the local technical committees with regard to their new directory, the subjects to be included, those to be excluded, the regulations and conditions under which the work is to be carried on, or any one of all the matters that go to make up a directory; and, if so, will he state what action he proposes to take in the matter.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The proposals of the Department in respect of the revision of the regulations under which Science and Art Grants are made to schools other than day secondary schools were duly considered by the Board of Technical Instruction as representative of the various local authorities in Ireland. Any change in the regulations is subject to the sanction of the Treasury, and the Department is about to communicate with the Treasury on the subject.
