HC Deb 03 January 1913 vol 46 cc673-4W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he is aware that some teachers who have been promoted from the 1st of April, 1910, by the Commissioners of National Education, Ireland, have not yet received the stated increase of salary in such cases; whether the time of waiting for the augmentation does not count in the qualifying period before being awarded a subsequent increment; and, if so, whether he will include this matter in the terms of reference to the proposed Commission of inquiry into certain alleged irregularities in the Irish primary education system?


I would refer the hon. Member to my replies to the similar questions of the hon. Member for Mid-Armagh on 19th December, 1912, and 2nd instant, to which I have nothing to add.


asked the Chief Secretary whether, in the case of a teacher's residence attached to a national school in Ireland, the loan for erecting which has been jointly repaid by the Commissioners of National Education and the occupying teacher, the manager is bound to allow the use of such residence to the teacher for the time being free of rent; and can the manager impose a rent on the teacher or divert the residence to other purposes?


The Commissioners of National Education are not in a position to make a statement in regard to this hypothetical question, but if the hon. Member will furnish the details of any particular case he may have in view inquiry will be made.
