§ MR. J. F. X. O'BRIEN (Cork)
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, considering the great benefits conferred on the poor in Ireland by the industrial schools, he will provide the small sum necessary to enable the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland to extend the benefits of the Industrial School, Clifden, county Galway?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Sir MICHAEL HICKS BEACH,) Bristol, W.
I have had no application from the Irish Government on behalf of the particular school referred to, for the reason which has, I am informed, been already stated to the hon. Member by the Chief Secretary for Ireland.
§ MR. J. F. X. O'BRIEN
Will the Chief Secretary reconsider his answer the other day to the effect that he had no money at his disposal for the purpose?
