HC Deb 16 December 1912 vol 45 cc1108-9W

asked the Chief Secretary when the terms of reference of the proposed Commission of Inquiry into the System of National Education in Ireland will be published; whether the teaching body will be represented on the Commission; and, if so, by how many members?


The precise terms of reference to the proposed Committee are not yet quite settled. I do not propose to include in the Committee either a national school teacher or a Commissioner of National Education, but amongst its members there will be persons practically acquainted with teaching in schools.
