§ MR. SEXTON (Belfast, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland what is the cause of the delay in the payment of the share for this year under the Local Taxation (Ireland) Act to teachers whose results examinations were held last April; and when will it be paid?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester. E.
The Commissioners of National Education report that the figures which will form the basis of the payments referred to have only recently been ascertained on the completed compilation of the School Returns. They hope very shortly to proceed with the payments.
