§ MR. BOLAND (Kerry, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Education whether he is aware that the London County Council has decided to accept Irish as a modern language at its examinations for clerkships; and whether, in issuing the new Code, he will specify that Irish may be included amongst the subjects for elementary day and evening schools.
§ SIR WILLIAM ANSON
No alteration of the regulations of the Board appears to be necessary. There is nothing in the existing regulations which prevents Irish being taught in any day or evening school where the Board are satisfied that it is a suitable subject of instruction.
