Vol. 196 No. 13

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Adult Education.


asked the Minister for Education if he is aware that there is a considerable demand for adult education throughout the country; and, if so, whether his Department have any responsibility in the matter of providing facilities for adult education.

Formal schemes of adult education are being conducted by University Colleges through the medium of extra-mural courses, by Vocational Education Committees, by the Catholic Workers' College and by other Institutes.

In keeping with the policy of giving every encouragement to such courses substantial grants are made available by my Department towards the cost of all the courses I have mentioned.
