§ MR. LEAMY
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland What was the number of examiners under the Intermediate Education Act 609 in the years 1880, 1881, 1882, and 1883; and, what was the proportion of Catholic examiners to those of other religious denominations in each of those of these years?
§ MR. TREVELYAN
Sir, the number of examiners in the years referred to wore—46, 54, 56, and 51. The Assistant Commissioners state that they only do the ordinary work of the Department, and cannot, without authority from their Board, give the further information asked for; but they will submit the question to them at the next meeting, which takes place in a few days.
§ MR. SEXTON
asked, if there was any objection to directing the Commissioners to state the reason why they waited to consult the Board?
§ [No reply.]
