HC Deb 10 May 1911 vol 25 cc1206-7

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, in view of the admitted hardship in individual cases of the 1900 rules of the National Education Commissioners raising the average attendance of pupils in a diminishing population, thus making normal promotion impossible, whether he is now in a position to say that the general practice in the Civil Service will be so far applied to national teachers that, in the absence of other cause, no teacher in the service prior to 1900 shall suffer diminution of income owing solely to the rules of that year?


I would refer the hon. Member to the replies to his previous questions on this subject, to which I have nothing to add.
