HC Deb 04 May 1904 vol 134 cc388-9

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state the general arrangements which have bean made by the Department of Agriculture in Ireland for the Irish exhibit at the St. Louis Exhibition.


The Department, with the concurrence of the Royal Commission, have co-operated with the Irish Exhibit Company of St. Louis in organising an industrial exhibit illustrative of See (4) Debates, cxxxiii., 1304. Ireland's resources and of her general progress. The exhibit so organised includes the following sections:—I., General Industries; II., Home, Cottage and Art Industries; III., Education; IV., Minerals; V., Agriculture; VI., Fisheries; VII., Statistics and Intelligence; VIII., Historic Art Industries and Relics; IX., Historic Engravings, Portraits, etc. The exhibit will be displayed in a special Irish section, for which the site and buildings have been provided by the Company referred to. The response of manufacturers and others engaged in industry in the country has been very satisfactory, and, as the exhibit now stands, it will probably prove to be the most comprehensive illustration of the actual industrial conditions of Ireland that has yet been got together for an International Exhibition.

MR. KILBRIDE (Kildare, S.)

Will the Vice-President's new book be exhibited there?
