HC Deb 07 May 1888 vol 325 c1464
MR. W. A. MACDONALD (Queen's Co., Ossory)

asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether he will consider, in conjunction with the Irish Government, the advisability of devoting a portion of the £127,000 granted in relief of Irish taxation to the improvement of the position of the National School Teachers of Ireland?

THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A, J. BALFOUR)(who replied) (Manchester, E.)

said: I am afraid it would be impossible to carry out the scheme suggested; and if it were carried out the inhabitants of the localities, whose rates are intended to be relieved by this £127,000, would have good reason to complain.
