§ Mr. O'DONNELL
asked the Chief Secretary what is the maximum salary which can be paid to an assistant teacher in an Irish national school in third grade and in second grade, respectively.
§ Mr. BIRRELL
The Commissioners of National Education inform me that the maximum salaries of assistant teachers in the third grade are: men £93, and women £79 10s.; and in the second grade men £123 and women £103 10s. Assistant teachers may receive a maximum Grant in addition of £8 15s. from the residue of the School Grant under the Irish Education Act of 1892, and may also receive a portion of the fees for special subjects.
