HC Deb 09 December 1890 vol 349 c764
MR. CLANCY (Dublin Co., N.)

, for Dr. KENNY (Cork, S.): I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether a vacancy is expected in the post of Catholic Chief of Inspection, under the National Education Board, Ireland; whether such vacancy, both by right and custom, belongs to the Catholic Inspectors of National Schools; and whether it is the intention of the Government to go outside the ranks of Catholic Inspectors in making the appointment; and, if so, will he consent not to make any appointment to the expected vacancy during the Recess, in order that the matter may be discussed in the House?


There is no immediate prospect of any vacancy.
