HC Deb 31 October 1906 vol 163 c1127
MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received the statement put forward by the Gaelic League as a tentative and temporary scheme for the teaching of Irish in the national schools, and can he say what steps, if any, he proposes to take in consequence of these proposals.


I have received the statement referred to, which appears to contain proposals of a very far reaching nature, and have invited the opinion of the Commissioners of National Education upon these proposals. It is for the Commissioners to prepare estimates for the expenditure of money upon this and other branches of instruction, and I understand that they will consider the matter at their next meeting.
