§ MR. THOMAS O'DONNELL (Kerry, W.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Board of Education in Ireland have taken into their consideration the case of assistant teachers of high qualification and of long service with a view to having their salaries increased; and whether he will consider the advisability of placing such teachers of ten years service and second class in the second grade; and whether any estimates for this amount will be included in this year's Estimates.
(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) The Commissioners have considered the cases of assistant teachers of high qualification and long service and have dealt with such cases in Rules Nos. 195 (f) and 200 (g) of their Rules and Regulations. Provision has been made in the Estimates for the next financial year to meet any increased expenditure on assistants that may be caused by the application of these rules.
