HC Deb 26 June 1888 vol 327 c1266
MR. P. M'DONALD (Sligo, N.)

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether candidates for first division of first-class of National teachers, Ireland, will be examined next July on a special set of questions; and, if so, what percentage of answering will be required; and, whether any credit will be given for length of efficient service further than is obtained from being admitted to the examination?


(who replied) said: Sir, the Commissioners of National Education state that the reply to the first inquiry is in the affirmative. An answering of 65 per cent, which is the same as last year, will be required. In answer to the second paragraph, I am informed that no credit will be given other than is obtained from being admitted to the examination.
