HC Deb 06 March 1882 vol 267 c186

asked the Junior Member for Leeds, Whether he purposes to meet the objections of the Irish Members to certain of the provisions of the Union Officers' Superannuation (Ireland) Bill, which takes away from the Poor Law Guardians the right of granting superannuation allowances in certain cases, and confers it on the Local Government Board, in order to re-introduce it in an amended form?


, in reply, said, the Government would not move to discharge the Order for the Second Reading of the Bill; but in Committee they would propose clauses with the object of leaving the power to grant retiring allowances in the hands of Boards of Guardians, and which would give to all Union officers the right of appeal to the Local Government Board.
