HC Deb 10 April 1911 vol 24 cc194-5W

asked the Chief Secretary when he will carry into effect the reform requested by the National Board, as promised by him, to secure assistant teachers in their position by allowing, before salaries are withdrawn, a fall of ten units in the present appointing averages; whether he hopes to arrange for the payment of national teachers monthly; and when he will be in a position to give the promised contribution towards the heating and cleaning of national schools?


The Irish Government recommended that a change should be made in the rules governing the tenure of assistant teachers, and the matter is before the Treasury. No provision has been made for the monthly payment of salaries of National teachers, but the matter will not be lost sight of. As regards the heating and cleansing of National schools, negotiations are still going on, and I am not without hope of being able to effect the object in view without recourse to legislation, but I am not in a position to make any statement on the subject.


asked the Chief Secretary whether a National school teacher named Daniel Dooley, Kilbricken, Mountrath, has taken possession of an evicted farm at Castletown, Queen's County; is he aware that this farm was bequeathed by the former owner to a man named Keenan, and that Dooley was witness to the will; and whether it is in accordance with the rules of the Board of National Education that National school teachers should mix themselves up in disputes about land in the manner in which Dooley has done?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to his question on this subject on 14th March.
