HC Deb 22 February 1904 vol 130 cc570-1

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the promise made by Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer to ask Parliament in this session to double the grant to University colleges in England in receipt of Parliamentary grants, he is prepared to submit to Parliament a proposal to establish in Ireland a University acceptable to the majority of the people of that country, and to which grants by Parliament could be given.


I cannot at the present moment usefully supplement my recent statement in this House on the subject of Irish University education.
