§ MR. JOHN CAMPBELL (Armagh, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the number of schools examined in Irish as an extra during the period from 1st January, 1905, to 31st March, 1905, upon which the inspector of Irish and the ordinary inspector reported favourably; whether payment has been delayed in some cases; and, if so, what has been the cause of the delay; and when the fees will be paid.
§ MR. WALTER LONG
The number was 259. Payment was delayed in some cases as a result of steps taken for the adoption of a uniform school year ending June 30th. The fees have now been 762 paid in most cases, and the remainder are in process of payment.
