§ MR. THOMAS O'DONNELL (Kerry, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the action of the intermediate board in refusing to obey a Resolution of the House of Commons on a subject which the Irish people feel strongly on, and also seeing that this Board and the national board are unrepresentative and independent, he will appoint a Committee to inquire into and report on the possibility of getting a board appointed by the Irish people to manage primary, secondary, and technical education.
Since the hon. Member gave notice of this Question, I have fully informed him of the facts in reply to a Question put by him on Monday.† It is not the case that the Board of Intermediate Education refuse to obey the Resolution of the House. I have told the hon. Member that three or four times already.
