§ MR. ARTHUR O'CONNOR (for Mr. SEXTOS)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Why the Commissioners of National Education in Ireland have not yet paid the teachers of National Schools the gratuities due to them for instructing paid monitors for the year ended 30th June 1884, though the monitors were examined over six months ago; and, why the few old teachers entitled to good service salary have not yet been paid the amounts due to them for 1884?
§ MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
I am informed that with the exception of a few cases in which, from one sufficient cause or another, delay has been unavoidable, the monitorial gratuities to teachers for the year ended on June 30, 1884, wore all paid in due course, and that of the 333 cases of good service salary only a few are outstanding which involve investigation and special consideration. These few will not be paid until the investigations have been decided.
