HC Deb 04 November 1908 vol 195 cc1236-7

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he can state the conditions of disbursement of that portion of the £114,000 now due to work-mistresses in National Schools, and when it is intended to pay the same.


The grant of £114,000 was voted to augment the incomes of principal teachers, assistant teachers, the teachers of schools paid by capitation, and junior assistant mistresses. Other persons employed in National Schools do not participate in the grant, and I do not think that, in framing the Estimate, the work-mistresses were taken into account.
