HC Deb 29 June 1911 vol 27 cc561-2

asked the Irish Secretary whether his attention has been called to the amount of extra work that was imposed upon the teachers in the national schools in Ireland in filling up the Census returns; and whether, as this work was undertaken after hours and had no immediate connection with the ordinary duties of the teachers, it is proposed to allow them any remuneration?


My attention has been called to this matter, and as I have already informed the hon. Member for the College Green Division of Dublin it is incumbent on the head of the school to supply the information required by the Census of 1911 as on former occasions. There are no funds available for the remuneration of persons furnishing these returns.
