§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether any steps will be taken by the Department of Agriculture to supply a competent agricultural instructor this year for the county Longford or whether the appointment to this office recently made by the county committee has yet been sanctioned.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The Department's scheme of instruction in agriculture for the year ending 30th September next, was not adopted by the county committee. Consequently no funds were provided by the Department for the appointment of an instructor. The appointment stated to have been recently made has not been, notified to the Department.
