HC Deb 09 July 1919 vol 117 c1830W

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland if the Commissioners of National Education issued a Circular to school attendance committees directing them to deal leniently with defaulters under the Compulsory Attendance Clauses of the Irish Education Act of 1892; if so, by what authority the Commissioners thus virtually repealed that law; and if he is aware that school attendance committees have rendered such obedience to that order that children of school-going age in many parts of the country stay away with impunity from school?


The Commissioners of National Education have not issued any Circular of the nature referred to in this question.
