§ MR. J. MURPHY (Kerry, E.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is now 693 in a position to state the additional amount that is to be added to this year's Estimates for Irish primary education.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) I am not in a position to state the precise amount, but I anticipate that it will be over £100,000. There are some details which are still the subject of discussion between the Government and the Board of National Education, but the matter is, I trust, approaching completion.
