RIOBARD O DEAGHAIDH: To ask the Minister for Education if he has received a resolution from Cork School Attendance Committee relative to the re-establishing of School Attendance Courts to deal with infringements of the Compulsory Attendance Act, and what action, if any, he has taken, or intends to take, in the matter.
Professor EOIN MacNEILL Professor EOIN MacNEILL
Professor EOIN MacNEILL: The resolution from the Cork School Attendance Committee has been duly received. Excellent work has been done in Cork in the matter of enforcing school attendance. It is hoped to have this good work continued and extended when the Courts of Summary Jurisdiction now being set up are established and certain necessary amendments are made in the Education Act of 1892. I may add that every well-considered activity that tends to develop the immediate interest and responsibility of the citizens in the education of their children is deserving of the highest consideration.
