HC Deb 20 June 1918 vol 107 c532W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland (1) whether the Board of National Education in Ireland has power to reduce a district inspector of schools in rank or salary; and, if so, under what authority, Regulation, or Act of Parliament; and (2) whether, in view of the fact that inspectors of national schools in Ireland hold their position at the pleasure of the National Board, that they enter the service on the understanding that their annual increments will be regularly awarded, he will state under what authority increments have notwithstanding been withheld in some cases?


Inspectors of national schools in Ireland are appointed by the Commissioners of National Education, and are established Civil servants holding their appointments under conditions similar to those affecting all such officers.
