Mr. ALAN SYKES
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether all existing teachers in model schools in Ireland are included in the provisions of Clause 33 of the Government of Ireland Bill, and, if so, whether they come under the provisions of Part I. of the rules as to compensation set out in Schedule 3 of the Bill; and whether, if all existing teachers in model schools are not within the provisions of Clause 33 of the Government of Ireland Bill, there is any and, if so, what provision in that Bill securing protection to such teachers by way of compensation in the case of changes being made by an Irish Government in their terms of service or in case of abolition of or dismissal from the offices such teachers now hold?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
Model school teachers come within the provisions of Clause 33. As regards the remainder of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to an Amendment which I have put down to the64W Third Schedule of the Bill, page 38, line 31, the effect of which will be to enable an officer who is pensionable on terms corresponding to those of the Superannuation Acts to have his compensation assessed under Part I. instead of Part II. of the Rule.
