Vol. 191 No. 14

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Education Scholarships: Contributions of Local Authorities.


asked the Minister for Education the amount contributed by each local authority, with the relative charge on the rates per £ valuation, towards educational scholarships divided as between (a) secondary, (b) vocational, and (c) university scholarships during each of the past three years.

I would refer the Deputy to my replies of the 11th of last month to similar questions. These replies when related to the reply given by the Minister for Local Government on the same day in regard to the product of a rate of one penny in the pound will furnish the Deputy with the information which he is seeking.

I may add in this respect, however, that the expenditure on post-primary scholarships is not segregated as between scholarships held in secondary schools and those held in vocational schools.
