§ MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Education can he state when did the Treasury cease to make building grants to training colleges in Great Britain; and at that date how many training colleges in England and Ireland respectively had received building grants from the Government.
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY TO THE BOARD OF EDUCATION (Sir WILLIAM ANSON,) Oxford University
The Committee of the Council on Education on 21st January, 1860, announced their intention of receiving no 1257 further applications for building grants in aid of the erection of training colleges in England, Scotland and Wales. The last grant was actually paid in 1864. Building grants were paid to twenty-nine English training colleges, four Scotch, and three Welsh. I am afraid I have no information as to Ireland.
