§ MR. J. C. FLYNN (Cork, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to a resolution adopted by a committee of the National Teachers' Organisation, in which that body declines to recognise the payment of £10,000 a year to the pension fund for the benefit of future teachers as an adequate compensation for the loss of their share of the school grant; and in view of the general dissatisfaction of the National Teachers, he will represent to the Treasury the necessity of meeting the teachers' claim for the arrears of school grant.
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
This question is based on a misapprehension of the proposals of the Government. These proposals were explained last Friday by my right hon. Friend the Secretary to the Treasury; and were, I think, of a nature, that will be generally recognised as liberal.
