§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether in view of the proposed visit of His Majesty the King to Ireland next month, and the fact that on similar occasions the Commissioners of National Education extended the usual holidays given to national school teachers by one week, he will ask the Commissioners to consider the advisability of granting a similar privilege during the forthcoming Royal visit.
(Answered by Mr. Birrell.) This question will be considered by the Commissioners of National Education at their next meeting.
