HC Deb 01 March 1915 vol 70 c582W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can state approximately how much, or what proportion, of the public money devoted to the promotion of dye industries has been allocated to Ireland, or is to be spent there; and whether the specific application of it will be determined here or left to the judgment of the Irish Technical Department?


As the House has already been informed, the Grant to which the hon. Member apparently refers will be made to the New Dyes Company, to be expended on research and laboratory work in such manner as the directors, who are to have the advice of a technical committee, may deem to be most expedient.
