MR. PINKEETON (Galway)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether the Irish Government has, after full consideration, decided that the claims of 1575 certain Professors of the Queen's Colleges in respect to loss of income brought about by the Royal University Act, and amounting in some cases to one-half the income of the Professors, are well founded; whether these claims have been under consideration for six years; and, whether any action will be taken by the Treasury in the direction of readjusting the incomes of these Professors, in accordance with the decision arrived at by the Irish Government?
§ THE SECRETARY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N.)
I think the hon. Gentleman must be under some misconception. I am informed the Irish Government have not arrived at any such decision as is indicated in the Question; and, therefore, no action on the part of the Treasury is contemplated.
