§ MR. M'FADDEN (Donegal, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state how many lady examiners are employed by the Intermediate Education Board of Ireland; and why, having regard to the number of Irish ladies who are graduates of the Royal University of Ireland, more lady examiners should not be employed; and will he say whether appointments to the office of examiners under the Board are made after competitive examination.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
Five lady examiners are employed in the present year by the Intermediate Education Board. The answer to the second paragraph is in the negative.
