HC Deb 09 March 1904 vol 131 c580

I beg-to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if ho will explain why the National Board refuses the use of national schools in Kerry for technical instruction under the county council, as there is no interference with the working of the school as an ordinary day school.


The Board has not refused to sanction the use of vested schools for the purpose mentioned, provided the manager gives a guarantee that the ordinary school work will not be allowed to suffer, and that any damage done to the premises or furniture will be made good by the County Committee for Technical Instruction. The Commissioners exercise no control over the use of non-vested schools except during school hours, and the managers have the right to grant the use of the buildings subject to the intervention of the Commissioners in cases leading to contention or abuse.
