HC Deb 30 April 1885 vol 297 c1105

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, in reference to workhouse teachers, What is the average salary of workhouse teachers in Ireland; what is the value of the weekly rations allowed them; what has been the average increase of salary to workhouse teachers during the past ten years; what compensation, if any, has been given to workhouse teachers for gratuities withdrawn by the Commissioners of National Education upon the passing of the Act of 1875; what is the average length of service of a workhouse teacher; is the whole of a workhouse teacher's time devoted to the care of the children in charge and to the discharge of other workhouse duties; and, is it true that, for several years past, the salaries of workhouse teachers have been paid from the Consolidated Fund and not from Poor Rates?


I have not had time to obtain the information asked for.
