84. Major BARNES
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the intention of the Government to carry a measure of self-government for Ireland, he proposed to re-introduce the Education (Ireland) Bill?
§ 89. Mr. NEIL MACLEAN
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether, pending the passage of the Education (Ireland) Bill, the Government will grant a bonus to the Irish teachers to enable them to carry on until the new scales of salaries come into operation or take steps to bring the new scales into operation at once?
§ Sir E. CARSON
May I ask whether the right hon. Gentleman is aware of the great disappointment thatexists among the teachers at the delay in regulating these salaries, and whether it would not be possible to make some such grant in advance, as the salaries date from the 1st April?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
I was cross-examined on this subject the other day. I can say nothing more than that the Treasury have examined it, and that the Government are not prepared to make a grant at present. The remedy seems to be to get the Bill through.
