HC Deb 16 June 1902 vol 109 cc705-6

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, seeing that the Commissioners, by one of their Rules, promised that no teacher should suffer financially by the new Hides, he can explain why there should be such a difference as £17 10s. 1d. between the consolidated salary and the salary earned for the year ended 31st March, 1900, by the principal teacher of the Dromandoora National School, county Clare.


The Commissioners promised, with the concurrence of the Treasury, that each teacher should receive at least the average of his earnings during the three years ended the 31st March, 1900. This average was allowed to the principal teacher of the school referred to.
