HC Deb 04 May 1904 vol 134 c394

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the recently held annual meeting of the Munster Dairy School and Agricultural Institute; and whether he can state what steps the Department of Agriculture and Technical Instruction propose to take in regard to the allocation of the sum of £10,000 set aside for the Munster Institute under Section 16 of the Agricultural and Technical Instruction (Ireland) Act, 1899.


The Department has already applied more than half the sum referred to to the extension of the buildings at the Munster Institute and the provision of additional equipment. The new buildings, some of which have already been in use, are now on the point of completion, and arrangements for the allocation of further monies to the development of the Institute are at present under consideration.
