HC Deb 28 June 1905 vol 148 c361
MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can say if the National Commissioners received a memorial in support of an application for aid to Waveney School, Ballymena; and whether, in view of the signatures attached to the memorial signifying approval of aid being granted to this school, he will request the Commissioners to reconsider their decision in regard to this school.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) Several memorials in support of the application for aid to Waveney School were received by the Commissioners. The representations were carefully considered before the Board arrived at the decision refusing recognition to this school. The case has been under consideration more than once, and the Commissioners see no reason to alter their decision.
