HC Deb 14 March 1904 vol 131 c986
MR. JAMES O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of Mr. Dale's report on the model schools in Ireland, in which it is shown that the cost of these schools is not only higher than that of the ordinary National Irish schools or Convent schools, which only cost the State £1 5s. to £2 10s. per head, but is actually above the cost incurred by the wealthiest English school boards, and that they have failed in one of their chief objects, namely, the united education of children of all creeds, he purposes to continue the grant to those model schools in Ireland.


I replied on Thursday last to a Question on this subject by the hon. and learned Member for North Louth.†
