HC Deb 29 October 1908 vol 195 c508
MR. BOLAND (Kerry, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what decision has been arrived at by the Irish Intermediate Board with reference to the resolution submitted for their consideration by the Gaelic League as to the literary courses; and can he state what decision has been arrived at in respect of the rules dealing with exhibitions and prizes.


The Board of Intermediate Education have had the resolution under consideration. They are of opinion that Rule 49 does not bear the construction placed on it by the Education Committee of the Gaelic League, and consequently that the Rule will not operate to the detriment of students taking Irish, as the Committee appear to anticipate.
