HC Deb 14 April 1905 vol 145 c197
MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)

To ask the Secretary to the Treasury have the Commissioners of National Education lately made any representations relative to the appropriation by the Treasury of the fees paid by the pupils in Irish model schools; whether the conditions under which the Commissioners agreed to pay over to the Treasury a fixed annual sum of £2,000 out of the fees collected each year still obtain; and whether, considering the altered conditions of payments to teachers in model schools since the year 1900, the Treasury will no longer require this payment, and permit the Commissioners, as they have more than once requested, to distribute the fees collected among the teachers of the schools which the pupils paying these fees attend.

(Answered by Mr. Victor Cavendish.) The Treasury has received no representation from the Irish Government or the Commissioners of National Education with reference to the arrangement under which the model school fees within the limit of £2,000 are appropriated in aid of the Vote for Public Education, Ireland.
