HC Deb 22 December 1916 vol 88 c1861W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether the food allowance of the girl students in the Marlborough Street Training College, Dublin, has been reduced in quantity; and, if so, whether, in view of the danger thereby occasioned to the health of these young girls, he will make representations to the Commissioners of National Education, under whose direct control this institution is, to have this matter seen to without delay?


I am informed that there has not been at present any reduction in the food allowance for the women students of the Marlborough Street Training College, but that on the recommendation of the immediate authorities a revised dietary scale has been adopted.
