§ MR. JOYCE (Limerick)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the War Office authorities have offered the Limerick Technical Instruction Committee certain rights and facilities in connection with the building of a central technical institute at the nominal rent of £1 per annum; have the Limerick Committee accepted the offer; and, if so, when; and, if the offer has been accepted, will the War Office press on the matter and have the agreement perfected so that the Limerick Committee can have the contract for the building entered into at once and thus push on this work.
§ MR. HALDANE
It has been decided to offer to the Limerick Technical Instruction Committee certain rights and facilities in connection with the building of a central technical institute on certain terms, one of which is a nominal rent of £1, and instructions have been sent to the General Officer Commanding accord- 234 ingly. It will be necessary to have a formal agreement, and while every effort will be made to push the matter forward, as the hon. Member will understand, legal agreements require time for preparation.
