§ MR. SLOAN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if, where a national school teacher has complied with the Education Board's rules and notified his manager of illness, he can say what course he should adopt where the manager refuses to certify for teacher's salary without a reduction, although no rule of the Board was violated.
§ MR. BIRRELL
I have referred this Question to the Commissioners of National Education, who inform me that they can express no opinion on a hypothetical case. They are prepared to consider any particular case if the facts are submitted to them.
