HC Deb 30 June 1881 vol 262 cc1651-2

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether, in consequence of the felonious abstraction at night of the school register from the Mount Pleasant National School, in the county of Limerick, the National Board has refused to hold the usual examination, and the teacher, Mr. Patrick O'Brien, has been thereby deprived of his result fees; and, whether the Inspector General of Constabulary has refused to give the said teacher a copy of the Police Report relative to said abstraction to send to the Board?


, in reply, said, he was informed by the Commissioners of National Education that the statement in the first part of the hon. Member's Question was incorrect. With regard to the second point, he was informed that the Inspector General of Constabulary had not refused to give the teacher a copy of the Police Report referred to. If the hon. Gentleman wished for further information on a matter which was really a matter of detail, he should be glad to communicate with him on the subject.
