§ Mr. J. P. FARRELL
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any resolutions from the Granard National Teachers' Association have reached him reminding him of his sympathetic reply to the deputation from the Irish National Teachers' Association in August, 1910, re pension and pay of Irish national teachers; whether any steps have been taken or are being taken by him to put Irish national teachers as regards salary and pension on a plane of equality with their English, Scotch, and Welsh brethren; and, if not, how soon he proposes to set about redeeming the pledges he then gave?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
As I have already stated in reply to several questions on this subject, my right hon. Friend has undertaken to consider the whole question of teachers' pensions as soon as the Insurance Bill has passed into law.
§ Mr. DORIS
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, replying to a deputation of Irish national teachers who laid before him the cases of teachers promoted to divisions of first grade who had not been paid the grade salaries to which they were entitled, he stated that he would pay those men their money; and, if so, what steps he intends taking towards carrying out this promise within a reasonable time?
