HC Deb 29 October 1908 vol 195 c504

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that efforts are being made to secure that a knowledge of the Irish language shall be a condition imposed on those desirous of matriculating at the new State-aided University in Dublin; and whether he will take the steps necessary to insure that no such restriction is brought into force.


The Executive Government has no voice in the matter of determining what shall be the subject of the matriculation examination at either of the new Universities.
