HC Deb 05 March 1895 vol 31 cc373-4

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the report of the actuaries in charge of the investigation into the financial stability of the Irish National School has vet been completed; and if so with what result; and whether the report will be furnished to the House, and to the National teachers who contribute so largely to the fund?


Several reports have been received from the Actuaries. They are now considering certain questions which the Treasury has addressed to them, bearing on the extent to which the ultimate liabilities of the Fund exceed its assets, and the best means of re-establishing its solvency. There is no reason to doubt that the Fund is sufficient to secure the full pension of every existing teacher. When the results are finally established they will be communicated to the teachers.
