§ 49. Mr. O'DONNELL
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the question of admitting the Press to its sittings has been considered by the Irish Education Committee, and, if so, what is the result; and, if, in face of the public demand for the Press, they still refuse to admit it, will he immediately take steps to dissolve the Committee as no longer carrying out in a satisfactory manner the task entrusted to it by Parliament?
§ The CHIEF SECRETARY for IRELAND (Mr. Birrell)
I am in communication with the Committee on the subject of admitting the Press, and the Press only, to their proceedings.
