HC Deb 24 May 1880 vol 252 cc329-30

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, When the increase to salaries of the Irish National Teachers, promised to them in August last in order to enable them to pay the contributions towards the pension funds, will be paid?


I find that on the 1st instant the Commissioners of National Education received final Treasury authority to pay the teachers, and on the same date a Circular was issued to the managers and teachers of National Schools to the effect that the Commissioners were prepared to receive applications for the amount of the increased payments for the quarter ending March 31st last. I hope the hon. and learned Gentleman has seen the Circular.
