HC Deb 13 July 1904 vol 137 c1484

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that in consequence of delay in producing the new plans for school building and of the poverty of the district, the work of erecting a school in Lettir, county Kerry, has been in abeyance for a number of years; and whether, in view of these circumstances, the National Board will contribute something more than the usual two-thirds of the cost, and thereby enable the manager to build a school under the old plans in accordance with the claims of the parents.


In this case the manager elected to postpone the erection of a school-house pending a decision on the question of the revision of the plans and estimates. The Commissioners offered to make a grant under the old regulations in March, 1902. They have no power to make a grant exceeding two-thirds of the estimated cost.
