HC Deb 08 August 1901 vol 99 cc60-1

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that in the Return furnished of the salary of the principal teacher, Sally-bank, twelve months equivalent grant for results and Customs and Excise grant and one month's consolidated salary which included another month's equivalent for these two items were returned as forming his income for the twelve months ended 31st March, 1901; whether, in view of the basis on which this teacher's salary was calculated, steps will be taken to compensate him for this loss by the recent alteration in the mode of payment; and whether the Return will be so amended as to give the amounts received for the residual grant and the balance of the residual grant separately for each of the four years dealt with.


I have received and will forward to the hon. member a detailed Return showing the actual payments made to this teacher for each quarter in the four years mentioned, under the various heads. It appears that the total payments were slightly in excess of those shown in the previous Return. The average for the three years ended March, 1900, is not, however, affected. The teacher suffered no loss by the recent alteration in the mode of payment.
