HC Deb 06 July 1908 vol 191 c1219

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the Commissioners of National Education in Ireland have asked from the Treasury grants for the purpose of establishing higher national schools in Ireland so to enable children from the national school to graduate for the University; and what answers have the Treasury given.

(Answered by Mr. Lloyd-George.) The Commissioners of National Education have on more than one occasion proposed the establishment of higher grade national schools; but the Treasury has not seen its way to sanctioning the expenditure involved.
