HC Deb 19 June 1894 vol 25 cc1457-8
MR. KNOX (Cavan, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received communications from both Catholic and Protestant members of the school committee, as king that Christian Brothers should be appointed as male teachers in the Glin Industrial School; whether he has been informed that there is not a single Protestant child in the six contributory Unions coming within the conditions of the grant; and whether, under the circumstances, he will continue to oppose the wishes of the committee; and, if so, for what reason?


The proposal of the Glin Joint Board to appoint Christian Brothers as teachers did not come officially under the notice of the Local Government Board until Wednesday last, the 13th instant, when they received the minutes of the proceedings of the Joint Board at their meeting held on the 9th instant. The question of the proposed appointments is now under consideration.

Forward to
