HC Deb 08 August 1904 vol 139 cc1358-9

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state for what number of students is provision to be made in the Marlborough Street Training College in connection with the proposed building and equipment grant of £50,000; what is the capitation payment taken as the basis of the grant proposed to be made; are the existing buildings in Marlborough Street and in Talbot Street to he used under the new arrangement; if so, are the new buildings to be erected merely houses of residence and not a complete college.


The new buildings will provide accommodation for 130 male and 165 female students, the numbers for which the existing college is licensed. The capitation payments will continue at the present fixed rates which are set out in the Estimates. The existing buildings in Marlborough Street will continue to be used as lecture rooms. The new buildings are required as residential establishments. The house in Talbot Street will cease to be occupied as a place of residence.
