§ MR. KER (Down, E.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Board of National Education (Ireland) has refused to approve of the appointment of a monitor for the Annadown National School, County Down, which has an average attendance for the last year far in excess of that required by the Rules of the Board, and that the master has generally between 40 and 60 pupils to attend to without any assistance?
§ THE PARLIAMENTARY UNDER SECRETARY (Colonel KING-HARMAN) (Kent, Isle of Thanet)
(who replied) said, the Board of National Education stated they were obliged to refuse their sanction to this appointment, amongst others, owing to the temporary excess of pupils. The 1st of July in each year was the day fixed for sanctioning new appointments of monitors. Any representation then made by Inspectors would be fully considered by the Commissioners.
