HC Deb 02 June 1913 vol 53 c607W

asked the Chief Secretary (1) whether the difficulties which have arisen in connection with the Grant of £40,000 per annum, promised last July, for Irish intermediate education, have yet been settled; if so, whether he will lay upon the Table a copy of the scheme for its distribution; and (2) if the scheme for the distribution of the £40,000 per annum promised last July for Irish intermediate education is settled before the end of June, 1913, can the whole or any portion of the Grant be made payable along with the other intermediate Grants in December, 1913?


The scheme for the distribution of the Grant is not yet finally settled, but I hope that it soon will be. In the meantime I am not in a position to say when the first payments out of the Grant can be made.
