HC Deb 03 April 1905 vol 144 cc110-1

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland why the equivalent grant, in lieu of results fees, paid to the teacher of Roll No. 5094 national school for the year ended May 31st, 1900, was not based on the amount earned the previous year by Mr. M'Carthy, instead of having it based on amounts earned by his predecessor; why his consolidated salary was reduced from £87 to £74 per annum; and whether this case will be again considered by the resident Commissioner.

(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) The grant in this and similar cases is based on the average results fees earned in the school in the preceding three years. Mr. M'Carthy's consolidated income, which amounted to £85, and not £87 as stated, was divided into salary £74, and residual capitation grant £11. His income, therefore, was not reduced. The case has already been fully considered.
