HC Deb 14 March 1907 vol 171 c211

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state when the grant promised in aid of the improvement of the national school at Doagh will be given; what the amount will be; and if he is aware that all preliminaries having been adjusted, there is a feeling in the district that no further delay should occur.

(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) The Commissioners of National Education inform me that they have provisionally approved of the erection of a new school-house at Doagh, but no grant has been promised, and they cannot yet state what the amount of the grant will be or when it will be possible to make it. The necessary preliminaries have not been completed, the required extension of the site has not been offered, nor has evidence of title been submitted. Moreover, the case is not as pressing as many others which have had to be suspended.
