§ MR. MURPHY (Kerry, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state whether the Department of Agriculture and Technical Instruction made grants from the Endowment Fund or any other fund to any persons in the county of Kerry in the year 1901–5, other than to the county council of Kerry; and, if so, what were the amounts of such grants and to whom were they given.
§ MR. ATKINSON
Certain payments were made for fishery purposes, and grants for science and art instruction were made to such schools as had earned them. I will forward to the hon. Member the details of these payments. It should have been stated in reply to the hon. Member's Question of Wednesday† last that, in addition to the grants to the county committee, a sum of £400 was paid in 1904–5 out of the Endowment Fund to the Tralee Urban District Technical Instruction Committee in respect of a grant of £500 payable to them for that year; and a further sum of £301 1s. 6d. was paid to them in the same year in respect of the grant for the previous year.
