§ MR. TUITE (Westmeath, N.)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether the Commissioners of Public Works in Ireland are empowered, under any Rule made by the Treasury, to require any particular individual to become security for a loan for a national school teachers' residence; and, whether it is necessary that the applicant or lessee should become security when the security of three other persons, any one of whom is sufficient for the entire loan, is offered, and to none of whom the Commissioners object?
§ THE SECRETARY (Mr. JACKSON) (Leeds, N)
The Treasury has not made any Rule requiring any particular individual to become surety for a loan for a national school teacher's residence; but the Commissioners of Public Works, I believe, require (in addition to security for the repayment of the loan) that the manager of the school, or the lessee of the site, shall join in the bond, as they 1830 alone can secure the exclusive use of the residence for the intended purpose. There are two questions involved—one is security for the repayment of the loan, and the other is to secure that money borrowed in this way shall not be used for the purpose of erecting residences or dwellings which shall be used for other purposes than teachers' residences; and it is for the purpose of securing that that these men are asked to become bound.
