HC Deb 26 July 1916 vol 84 cc1678-9
60. Mr. P. MEEHAN

asked the Home Secretary if he has received a statement from the Irish Model School Teachers' Association in reference to the distribution of the fees collected in model schools; and whether he intends taking any action in the matter?


I am informed that the Commissioners of National Education have received a statement of the nature referred to, but that financial conditions preclude any action being taken in the matter at the present time.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that up to now male teachers in model schools in Ireland have received free residence or rent allowance, and that before 1900 the headmistresses of model schools in Ireland have received £30 per annum from the Treasury in respect of their residence?


The hon. Member must put those details upon the Paper.
