§ MR. MEAGHER
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether the salaries of teachers in Irish workhouses, though being paid in the first instance from the local rates, are subsequently refunded by the Government to the local authorities; and, if so, whether he can see his way to have this class of teachers included for a share in the supplementary grant in aid of National teachers.
§ MR. BIRRELL
The answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part of the Question, the supplementary grant of July last was in aid of the Vote for public education. No charge in respect of the 1691 salaries of teachers of Poor Law union schools has ever been borne on that Vote.
