HC Deb 11 August 1881 vol 264 cc1535-6

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether any steps can be taken to extend to the Workhouse National Schools, and to the teachers in those Schools, the benefits of the results system, in cases where the Guardians have neglected to do so?


, in reply, said, that no steps of the nature referred to in the Question of the hon. Member had been taken. Without fresh grounds it was not an easy matter for legislation. He was not surprised at the dissatisfaction expressed by the officials of such schools. Workhouse schools, however, were not under the control of the Board of Education, and it rested with the Guardians to pay by results or not.
