§ 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?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
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 2354 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.
