§ Major O'NEILL
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland how many teachers in Circuit 3b (Magherafelt Section) have been deprived of increments or promotion by reason of unsatisfactory reports from inspectors during the last three years; and to what extent the educational efficiency of this section has declined during the period mentioned?
§ Mr. A. W. SAMUELS
The Commissioners of National Education consider that it would not be desirable in the public interest to publish the particulars asked for in this question. There is no evidence, however, in the records of their office that would indicate a decline in the educational efficiency of the schools of the Magherafelt Section during the period mentioned.
