§ Sir THOMAS ESMONDE
asked the Chief Secretary if he is aware that the new national schools at Gorey, county Wexford, have been opened for twelve months, and that the final Treasury contribution towards their construction has not yet been paid; and if he will inquire into the case, and take steps to have this final payment made without further delay?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The balance of the Grant in the case of these schools was withheld pending the completion of certain outstanding items. These have all now been completed with one exception, and £100 has been issued, leaving a balance outstanding of £27 10s. 1d., which will be subject to some deductions for deviations from the approved plans.
