HC Deb 01 March 1897 vol 46 c1335
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.


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.
