§ 27. Mr. BYRNE
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if he will see that all women teachers, including lay assistants in convent schools, shall receive an equivalent to the bonus granted to male teachers; and, as the proposed Capitation Grant of 4s. per unit of average attendance is not, in all cases, sufficient to pay recognised convent school assistants this equivalent, will the Treasury increase, where necessary, this Grant in order to make up the deficit?
§ The CHIEF SECRETARY for IRELAND (Mr. Duke)
Equal terms have been provided for all the teachers concerned. I cannot hold out hope of any further concession.
