§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the National Commissioners of Education promised the manager of the O'Neill Memorial School, Castlereagh, County Down, that £287 6s. 6d. would be paid as a supplementary grant towards the erection and equipment of the school; and if he can say why such grant has not been paid.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The Commissioners of National Education inform me that no definite promise of a supplementary grant was given in this case, but the manager was made aware that the Commissioners were in favour of granting his application if possible. The matter is still under consideration.
