asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if, in view of the recent Report of the Viceregal Committee of Inquiry into Primary Education in Ireland, he will consider the advisability of reinstating Mr. E. Mansfield in his former position; and whether the recommendations of the Committee of Inquiry will be embodied in the rules and regulations of the Commissioners of National Education for Ireland?
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the question asked on this subject by the hon. Member for Mid-Antrim on the 19th February last. With regard to the latter part of the question, the Commissioners of National Education are not at present in a position to make any statement on the subject.
