HC Deb 28 December 1893 vol 20 c342
MR. JACKSON (Leeds, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in those districts in which arrangements have not been made for the appointment of school attendance committees, under "The Irish Education Act, 1892," there are any schools in which school fees are still paid; and, if so, whether he will state the names of such schools?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the negative, except in the comparatively few cases in which, under Section 18, Sub-section 3, of the Act, an excess fee (i.e, excess over the 6s. average rate up to which fees are abolished by the Act) may still be charged.
