HC Deb 02 July 1906 vol 159 cc1386-7
MR. T. M. HEALY (Louth, N)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if his attention has been called to the fact that in the programme for the King's Scholars' examination for 1907, formulated by the Irish Commissioners for National Education, dated March last, amongst the books recommended for general reading, along with the works of authors like Shakespeare, Goldsmith, Scott, and Stevenson, is included "Some experiences of an Irish R. M."; can he state what official is responsible for this selection; and can nothing more useful be officially recommended to King's Scholars.

(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) I am informed by the Commissioners of National Education that they are themselves responsible for the selection of the book referred to, which is considered to be suitable for general reading.
