HC Deb 15 July 1913 vol 55 c1078W

asked the Chief Secretary the average income of a male principal teacher, second class, in an Irish national school under the old regulations in force in 1901 in a school where the average attendance was over seventy and where about ninety pupils were presented for results and made an excellent examination?


The Commissioners of National Education inform me that the average income from State sources of a second-class male principal teacher in 1895 was £90 12s. 7d. No later figures are available. It would be impossible now to say what the average income of a teacher might have been under the system of payments in force prior to 1900 in such a case as is contemplated in the question. In 1901 the new system of payments was in operation.
