HC Deb 25 November 1909 vol 13 cc341-2

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether his attention has been called to the resolution of the University Committee, Cork, of the 20th instant, complaining of the insufficiency of the sum allotted for building purposes; and whether, in view of the increase in the number of students from all parts of Munster and the increase in the number of subjects taught, he will communicate with the Treasury with a view to securing an increase of the sum granted?


I have seen the Resolution, but as I have just informed the hon. Member for North Sligo in the case of Galway, I cannot undertake to re-open the question.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that Belfast gets a building grant of £60,000, and Cork only gets £14,000, which is totally inadequate?
