HC Deb 27 February 1905 vol 141 c1306
MR. LONSDALE (Armagh, Mid.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the fact that a resident clergyman is not available for appointment as manager of the Lislea (No. 1) National School (county Armagh), the National Education Commissioners will accede to the expressed wishes of the parents of the children attending the school, and appoint a resident layman to the office of manager.

(Answered by Mr. Wyndham.) I am informed by the Commissioners that it is their practice in cases such as this to recognise the clerical successor of the former manager when a vacancy occurs. The school was recently visited by the Board's senior inspector, who reports that it is being conducted satisfactorily under the present temporary manager, the Rev. Mr. Simpson.
