§ MR. JOHN CAMPBELL (Armagh, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the initial salary at present paid to teachers in Irish national schools; and also the salary, together with all allowances for lodging, clothing, etc., paid to constables of the Royal Irish Constabulary.
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. WYNDHAM,) Dover
The initial salaries tries of teachers vary from £61 to £71, for four hours' secular instruction daily. Where the teachers give instruction in extra branches, or conduct evening schools, the emoluments are much higher. The initial pay of a constable is £39, and his allowances are at rates shown in the Estimates. His uniform is supplied at the public expense.
