HC Deb 07 March 1879 vol 244 c404

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, When the Bill by which he proposes to deal with the claims of the National Teachers of Ireland will be introduced; and, if he can state whether the subject of the salaries of the teachers will be dealt with by such Bill?


The actuarial Report dealing with the question of the pensions of school teachers—the preparation of which, I may remark, proved a very lengthy and laborious task—has only recently been furnished to the Treasury, and, in fact, it was only to-day that a copy of that document reached me. As it will require careful consideration, it will not be possible to introduce a Bill upon the subject immediately; but I hope to be in a position to do so soon after Easter. I may add that it is intended, at the same time, to deal with the question of salaries.
