MR. HUGH BARBIE (Londonderry, N.)
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, seeing that the additional demands upon Imperial funds caused by the proposals in the new Education Bill are estimated at £750,000 per annum, he is prepared to include in his Estimates a proportional additional grant for educational purposes in Ireland.
§ MR. ASQUITH
As the financial arrangements under the Education Bill will not come into force during this financial year, I consider it would be premature to come to any decision on the question raised by the hon. Member.
