HC Deb 15 February 1922 vol 150 cc1052-3W

asked the Prime Minister whether any undertaking has been given by the Provisional Government of Southern Ireland that the Irish Free State will accept responsibility for paying annually the sums payable to certain colleges in Southern Ireland under Section 64 of The Government of Ireland Act, 1920, out of moneys provided by the Parliament of Southern Ireland; and, if not, will he say what provision it is intended to make for the payment of these sums in future?


This is a matter which the various institutions concerned will no doubt take up with the Provisional Government. I am not in a position to make any statement on the subject.
