§ MR. MACARTNEY
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether any provision is made in the Government of Ireland Bill for the continuance of the grants for science and art under the Science and Art Department; and, if so, in which clause?
§ SIR W. HARCOURT
May I be allowed, in the absence of the Prime Minister, who, I regret to say, is confined to the house by a severe cold, to answer the question? No provision is made in the Bill for the continuance of the grants. The matter will, of course, depend on the Irish Government.
