HC Deb 08 August 1918 vol 109 cc1520-1

The following question stood on the Paper in the name of Mr. BOLAND:

22. To ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether his attention has been called to the official statement issued in connection with the Education (Scotland) Bill with respect to the equivalent Grant for Scottish education; whether, in view of the fact that Scotland's equivalent Grant, being eleven-eightieths of £4,865,915, the excess of estimated expenditure for education in England and Wales in 1918–19 over 1913–14, is stated to amount to £669,063, he will state what is the amount of the equivalent Grant for Irish education; whether it has been allocated; and what is the exact amount of that equivalent Grant estimated to be expended in Ireland in the current financial year?


I have been asked by the right hon. Gentleman to postpone this question. Would he supply me with the information as soon as he gets it—it is very urgent?
