HC Deb 08 July 1880 vol 253 cc1894-5

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Commissioners of National Education in Ireland gave, in 1878, to the Galway Model School, £7 4s. for doing the same Government work for which it gave only £1 2s. 8d. to the King's Inn Street Schools; and, whether he will draw their attention to the facts and ask for an explanation?


in reply, said, he should refer the hon. Member to the answer he gave to the hon. Member for Kilkenny a few days since on that subject. It could not be said that the same amount of work was done in the King's Inn Street School as in the Model School, where pupil teachers were trained, causing additional expense, as they were, to some extent, boarded. The school referred to was a Convent school, and, he believed, a very good school; and the payment made was about a quarter what it would other wise be, because the teachers would not present themselves for examination for certificates of classification.
