I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland to what
object he proposes to devote the equivalent grant payable to Ireland in respect of the £100,000 to be voted for the erection of public elementary schools in England and Wales.† See(4) Debates clxxviii, 56
The hon. Member appears to assume that if the sum mentioned in the Question should be voted, a proportionate grant would be made to Ireland in addition to the £65,000 already provided in the Estimates for the building of national schools in Ireland. This is not the case.
Is Ireland to-have no equivalent to that £100,000?
