HC Deb 26 March 1912 vol 36 c218

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he will now consider the justice of abolishing standard numbers in the grading or classification of Irish teachers; and whether in doing so he will refund to all teachers promoted but not paid during the past two years the arrears due on account of such promotion?


I am not prepared to recommend an indefinite increase of the numbers in the several grades of national teachers. With regard to the second paragraph, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave yesterday to the question of the hon. Member for Mid-Armagh on this subject.
