HC Deb 06 April 1905 vol 144 c657
MR. LUNDON (Limerick, E.

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury can he say whether any managers of national schools in East Limerick, within the past five years, have been in treaty with the Commissioners of National Education about obtaining grants for the building of schools, and so far have failed in their efforts; and, if so, will he say what has been the cause of the failure; and when be expects that the Commissioners will be in a position to issue their new code of rules as regards building.


I am informed that certain applications for building grants have been made, but that there are being held over pending the settlement of the general question of revised plans for national schools, which, as I have already stated,I am endeavouring to expedite. I understand, however, that in the case of one application special plans are under consideration which may enable the work to be proceeded with under the regulations now in force.
