HC Deb 26 October 1916 vol 86 cc1322-3
28. Mr. CREAN

asked the Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture (Ireland) if he will state to whom the Northlands School of Housewifery in Londonderry belongs; does the Department now exercise any control over it; is any rent paid to the Department in respect of the school by its present principal, and, if so, how much; is he aware that the school is stated in the prospectus and other advertisements issued in respect of it to be in connection with the Victoria High School, Londonderry, which is a private concern; what is the nature of the connection between the two schools; was the Northlands School built and equipped with public money; and, if so, is it in accordance with the policy of the Department that an advantage should be given to one private school in Londonderry as against its competitors by allowing it to advertise the Northlands School as an adjunct of it?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by me on this subject to the hon. Member for South Down on the 13th April last.
