HC Deb 17 April 1905 vol 145 cc295-6

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether bee-keeping is taught by the Department of Agriculture in Ireland; and whether, in case lectures on this subject are given, there would be a possibility of sending a lecturer to Longford before the summer season comes on.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) Lecturers on bee-keeping are appointed by county committees under the Department's schemes. In most "counties instruction in bee-keeping is given by the county horticultural instructor. The Longford Committee have not yet adopted a horticultural scheme.
