§ MR. THOMAS O'DONNELL
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland when were the programmes and rules, issued by the intermediate, Board, for the year 1907 laid upon the Table of the House; and whether, in view of the way in which the Board have treated the Irish language in their programme, he will give an opportunity of discussing it as soon as possible.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The rules and programme of the Intermediate Education Board for the year 1907 were laid upon; the Table on the 2nd instant. I am informed that the position of the Irish language in the programme does not differ in any way from that which it occupied in the previous year. I understand that the next meeting of the Board will take place on the 24th instant, and if the hon. Member has any representations to make as to the treatment of Irish I will communicate them to the Board for their consideration.
