HC Deb 09 August 1904 vol 139 c1565
MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the circumstances under which the Commissioners of National Education resolved not to recognise any newly-organised school, the teacher of which may have received dismissal by late manager; and what steps does he propose taking to prevent dismissal of teachers whose conduct is good and whose services have proved satisfactory.


The Commissioners have not adopted the course suggested in the first part of the Question. Under the terms of Rule 44 (d) the local manager is the person charged with the appointment and removal of a teacher, and so long as the Rules are complied with the Commissioners do not interfere with him in the matter.
