HC Deb 08 March 1912 vol 35 c781W

asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that certain Queen's scholars who were in training during the years 1898–1900 got, on their first appointment as teachers under the National Board, a higher salary than £56 per annum, exclusive of residual capitation grant, and that the Auditor-General subsequently surcharged the Commissioners of National Education the extra amount paid these teachers; and can he state the number of Queen's scholars who completed a two years' training course in 1900 and passed with special distinction, who were paid at the rate of £56 per annum, exclusive of capitation grant, and of those paid at a higher rate than £56 per annum, exclusive of capitation?


The Commissioners of National Education inform me that they are not in a position to make a statement in regard to this question unless the names of the teachers referred to, and the schools in which they were serving, are furnished to them.
