§ MR. MACVEAGH
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether any competitive examination will be held in connection with the forthcoming appointment of four junior inspectors of national schools.
The Commissioners of National Education inform me that they have up to the present only advertised for candidates for the positions referred to. They have not yet finally determined the method of selection of the inspectors from the candidates.
§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the desirability of representing to the Commission that these appointments should be thrown open to competitive examination?
