HC Deb 26 April 1906 vol 156 c14

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland on what basis are intermediate exhibitions awarded; and will he explain why in June, 1905, in the middle grade girls, the number of £25 exhibitions awarded to modern literature was twelve, and science one, seeing that in both subjects the number of passes was the same, and honour marks in science only eight lower than in modern literature.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The Commissioners of Intermediate Education inform me that the basis on which exhibitions were awarded in 1905 is contained in Rules 41, 42 and 43. As regards the second part of the Question, the Commissioners inform me that they are unable to give a reply, as the meaning of the Question is not clear to them, and perhaps my hon. friend will take an opportunity of putting the Question down in a more precise form.
