§ MR. BYRNE (Wicklow, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Excise and Customs grant of £78,000 to the national school teachers for the year ended 31st March, 1892, has yet been divided; whether he can state the amount of the capitation grant per head, and, if it has not yet been divided, what is the cause of the delay; and can he state when it will be distributed?
§ *MR. JACKSON
The grant of £78,000 to the national school teachers of Ireland has been long since distributed, except in a few cases where the circumstances do not render it possible to yet pay the teachers, and except with regard to the payments to the Poor Law Guardians which are proceeding. The amount of the capitation distributed amongst the teachers was at the rate of three shillings and fourpence per child in average daily attendance.
