§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland what are the annual salary and emoluments of the Resident Commissioner of National Education in Ireland, and if that salary is paid monthly; what is the annual salary of a junior assistant mistress in an Irish national school; and whether, in view of the fact that such salary is paid quarterly, he will take steps to secure that such salaries shall be paid monthly in future.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) The salary of the Resident Commissioner of National Education is £1,500 per annum, payable in monthly instalments. The maximum salary of a junior assistant mistress is,£24 per annum, payable quarterly. As regards the question of making monthly payments to teachers, I beg to refer the hon. Member to my reply to his similar 436 Question on June 28th. The matter is entirely for the Commissioners.
