HC Deb 21 August 1883 vol 283 cc1502-3

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Bill which the Government proposes to bring in next Session to amend the Irish Teachers' Act, 1875, will place the teachers in the Workhouse National Schools on an equal footing as regards result fees with the teachers in the ordinary National Schools?


Sir, I can give no pledge on this subject now. It would be impossible, without much consideration, to undertake to reverse the policy of former legislation in the matter; but I will consider the subject with the details of the Bill before I introduce it.
