§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S. )
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the dissatisfaction in regard to the introduction of the new rule in boys schools, he will consult with the National Commissioners of Education as to the advisability of the amalgamation of boys and girls schools where work goes on under one roof, and inaugurate a separate infant department for both sexes up to eight, the head mistress holding her salary and put in charge of the latter department.
(Answered by Mr. Walter Long.) The Question, presumably, refers to Rule 127 (b). If so, I would ask the hon. Member to defer the Question until Monday next.
