HC Deb 18 March 1920 vol 126 cc2353-4
10. Captain REDMOND

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he has received resolutions from various committees protesting against the proposed abolition of local technical instruction committees; whether he is aware that these committees have almost invariably worked with success the administrative duties necessary to ensure co-operation between the pupils, parents, and rate-payers of their respective districts and, in view of these representations, what action does he propose to take?


Representations have been made on the lines indicated in the first part of the question. I do not doubt that these committees have, as suggested, ensured a certain amount of co-operation between pupils, parents, and ratepayers, and my hon. and gallant Friend will find on examination of the Education Bill, that this principle of coordination is being developed.
