HC Deb 03 April 1905 vol 144 c143
MR. JOHN REDMOND (Waterford)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the claim repeatedly put forward by the standing committee of the Catholic Bishops of Ireland for free homes for the three training colleges at Belfast, Waterford, and Limerick, and the necessity for putting these colleges on the same footing as the other training colleges where the buildings have been paid for by the Government; and whether he can propose any settlement of this question.


Yes, Sir, my attention has been directed to the claims of the Catholic Bishops and to the declarations made by my predecessor in the matter. The question is engaging my consideration.
