§ MR. THOMAS O'DONNELL
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Ringrove National School, Castlepark, Kinsale, was closed owing to epidemic by the order of Dr. Browne, Local Government Board inspector, from 5th November, 1903, to 31st December, 1903, and that, in spite of this fact, salary was only paid for 54 out of the 92 days of the quarter; and, if so, whether under these circumstances the salary which has been withheld will be immediately paid.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
The Commissioners are not aware that the school was closed by order of the Local Government Board inspector. They will give further consideration to the case of the teachers of the school.
