§ Sir THOMAS ESMONDE
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if, pending the results of the proposed inquiry, Mr. Mansfield will be reinstated in his position; and whether the Commission of Inquiry will have power to investigate into the whole administration of the Board of Education?28W
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The answer to the first paragraph is in the negative. The terms of reference to the Commission of Inquiry will not cover the whole administration of the Board, but only the working of the present system of inspection and kindred matters.
