§ MR. SLOAN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that complaints have been made by the students of Marlborough Street Training College in regard to the food supplied; whether he is aware that many of the female students were obliged to purchase bread, being unable to use that supplied to contract; and what action, if any, does he propose to take in the matter.
I am informed by the Commissioners of National Education that complaints have recently been made to them in respect of the bread supplied to the students of the Marlborough Street Training College. It is reported that in some instances female students purchased broad in the city. The Commissioners have fully investigated these complaints, and have taken such steps in regard to the bread supply as will, they hope, prevent a recurrence of any cause of complaint.
