HC Deb 30 May 1906 vol 158 c421

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the new rules of the Board of Intermediate Education for Ireland received the official sanction of the Lord-Lieutenant before they wore laid upon the Table of this House; and whether there is any precedent for the action of the Chief Secretary in supporting an amendment of rules in such circumstances.


The rules received the formal sanction of the Lord-Lieutenant, no representations on the subject having been addressed to him from any quarter. But, subsequently, facts which at the time were not known to His Excellency have led to a consideration of the rules, which disclosed objections.
