MR. P. O'BRIEN
On behalf of the hon. Member for the St. Patrick Division of Dublin, I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when will the arrears of fees due for the years 1893, 1894, and 1895, under the Education Act, 1892, be paid to the Irish teachers?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Sir M. HICKS BEACH,) Bristol, W.
What has been called the arrears of the Irish Fee Grant were voted by Parliament more than a year ago, and applied, with the assent of the National Board of Education, towards making up the deficiency in the Teachers' Pensions Fund. I have no other proposals to make on the subject.
