national school teachers in Ireland, Although the hon. Gentleman will not expect me in an answer to a question to make a statement as to the scheme of the Government, I must say that I cannot believe that any plan for assisting education in Ireland can be otherwise than advantageous to the national school teachers.

MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)

Before the Government make up their minds, will the Irish Members be made acquainted with their scheme?


I have always been anxious to give every information in my power.
