HC Deb 08 May 1884 vol 287 cc1696-7

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, If it is not a fact that, since the death of the late Mr. Farmer, the chief clerk in the Court of Bankruptcy and Insolvency, on the 20th of February 1881, that portion of his duties which consisted of insolvency business has, by direction of the Judges, been satisfactorily performed by Mr. David Connellan, first clerk Town and Country Departments in Insolvency, in addition to his own duties; whether the efficient discharge of such additional duties entitles Mr. Connellan to extra remuneration, under the 37th section of the Act 35 & 36 Vict., c. 58, and have not the Judges of the Court recommended that he should receive such additional remuneration; and, will the Treasury comply with such recommendation?


I answered a Question on this subject on Monday. I have only now to add that Mr. Connellan had no claim under the section referred to.
