HC Deb 03 April 1917 vol 92 cc1118-9
37. Mr. LYNCH

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether, now that a large scheme is being prepared to foster education in all degrees in this country, he will take steps to secure that Ireland shall receive her proportionate share of any money Grant for educational purposes; and whether he will represent to the Treasury that the position of Irish national teachers, both male and female, is worse than that of the corresponding class in England or Scotland and that, as a preliminary, the whole financial status of these Irish teachers should be raised?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on Monday week to the hon. Member for West Kerry.


Will the right hon. Gentleman take this opportunity of doing something serviceable for Ireland in a perfectly capable and effective way?


I am quite sure that when a large change is being made in the arrangements for British education the condition of education in Ireland will be considered carefully and dealt with.
