§ MR. MCKILLOP (Armagh, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that in 1903 the Armagh board of guardians dispensed with the services of Miss M'Kee, 1029 assistant teacher, granting her an allowance of £9 sterling a year; that the Local Government Board refused to sanction the allowance; and if he can state the grounds upon which the Local Government Board acted in withholding its sanction in this case.
§ (Answered by Mr. Bryce). I beg to refer to my reply to the Question of the hon. Member for South Down on the 28th June, † which gives full details of the matter in question. It is not the case that the Local Government Board refused to sanction the superannuation allowance proposed for Miss M'Kee.
