HC Deb 03 December 1906 vol 166 c549

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant: of Ireland when the loans for the building of the proposed new schools in the parish of Ferns, county Wexford, will be issued.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The Commissioners of National Education inform me that they cannot yet name the precise date when the grants, not loans, for the building of these schools will be issued. The question of the floor-space per pupil to be allowed in the designs for new schoolhouses is now under consideration, and as soon as a decision upon that point is arrived at, which I trust will be very shortly, it may be expected that the issue of building grants can proceed forthwith.
