§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)
I bog to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that teachers now appointed to model schools are obliged to work two hours every Saturday more than teachers in ordinary schools and only receive the same salary; and whether, in view of this fact, he will make representations to the Commissioners of National Education to grant model school teachers relief from this extra work on Saturdays, or pay them for the special services they render.
§ MR. BIRRELL
I would refer the hon. Member to my Answer to his previous Question on this subject on 30th May.† The Commissioners of National Education inform mo that they are not prepared to make the change suggested in the Question.
