HC Deb 12 July 1888 vol 328 c1083
MR. BIGGAR (Cavan, W.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If only 75 per cent of the expenditure in Kildare Place Training College is paid by the Government; if this is conditional on the students giving satisfaction continuously for two years, as principals or assistants, in schools under the National Board; if the whole cost in Marlborough Street College is paid by the Government; and, if any persons can be made amenable for the outlay on students who trained there for the past five years, and who are not now under the Board?


The National Education Commissioners inform me that the replies to the inquiries in the first and third paragraphs are in the affirmative. The condition is as stated in the second paragraph, with the addition that the service may be in other public elementary schools. The Commissioners have no legal remedy should Queen's scholars trained in their College fail to obtain appointment in public elementary schools.
