HC Deb 13 March 1906 vol 153 cc1119-20
MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the delay in publishing the new plans for national schools in Ireland is causing dissatisfaction in Ireland; that, in the case of the school at Keelnabrack, Glenbeigh, County Kerry, the National Board now expect the manager to provide additional space for the girls school; and whether, seeing that it is now more than three years since the manager applied for a grant for a new school, and that the publication of the new plans has been delayed for that period, he will state what action he intends to take; and whether the delay in coming to a decision is caused by the Treasury, the National Board or the Irish Government.


As to the general Question I must refer the hon. Member to the Answer I gave to him on the 27th February†. The needs of the school at Keelnabrack, which cannot be described as specially urgent, will be dealt with in the general settlement.
