§ MR. J. DEVLIN (Belfast, W.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attetion has been called to the Resolution passed at the recent Congress of the 1648 Irish Technical Instruction Association in favour of the establishment of a bureau of commerce and industry in Ireland; and whether he will consider the advisability of establishing such a bureau.
(Answered by Mr. T. W. Russell.) My right hon. friend has asked me to answer this Question. I gather from the Press Reports of the proceedings of the Irish Technical Instruction Congress that such a resolution was adopted; but it has not yet been officially communicated to the Department. The matter to which it relates has for some time past been engaging the attention of the Department.
