§ 21. Mr. T. W. BROWN
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether His Majesty had, through the Lord Lieutenant for Ireland, requested that the holidays for school children in Ireland should be extended this year for one week; whether such request has been refused; and, as there has been no meeting of the Commissioners of National Education in the meantime, can he say on whose authority this request was refused?
§ The ATTORNEY-GENERAL for IRE-LAND (Mr. Denis Henry)
It has been decided, in deference to the views of His Excellency the Lord Lieutenant and the Chief Secretary, to grant the request for an extra week's holiday.
