§ Mr. FLAVIN
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he has received a resolution from the secretary to the Kerry Council, unanimously passed by that body, calling attention to the insufficiency of funds to meet the requirements of intermediate education in Ireland, and to the increase in the number of students entering for examination, and also to the status and inadequate financial treatment of Irish intermediate teachers; and, if so, whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
I have not received a copy of the resolution referred to. The matters referred to in the latter part of the question are occupying my attention, especially as regards the very difficult position of Irish secondary teachers, but I am not in a position to make any statement on the subject.
