HC Deb 24 October 1916 vol 86 cc968-9W

asked the Chief Secretary whether the increase of salary or the war bonus asked by the Irish national school teachers, in common with other large classes of public servants, has been or will be conceded; and, if so, whether it will be retrospective to the date from which increase or bonus has been paid to other public servants?


The Treasury has agreed that a war bonus shall be granted to Irish teachers on the same scale as though they were Civil servants of the Crown. The question of the date on which the bonus should take effect is under consideration.
