HC Deb 14 March 1906 vol 153 c1251
SIR EDWARD CARSON (Dublin University)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether it is the practice in Ireland for the managers of public elementary or national schools invariably to appoint teachers of their own religious denomination.


I am informed by the Commissioners of National Education, that as a rule the managers of national schools appoint teachers of the same religious persuasion as themselves, but not invariably so.
