HC Deb 13 April 1885 vol 296 cc1463-4

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, If Mr. Jenkinson, of the Detective Department, in addition to the pay which he receives as a public servant is an Indian pensioner; if so, what is the amount of the pension he receives, and for what length of service he is pensioned?


Mr. Jenkinson is in receipt of a pension of about £950 a-year, after 25 years' service in India. I should explain that pensions of this kind are regarded as annuities— they having been regularly subscribed for by the officers out of their pay—and are not subject to the rules ordinarily affecting the pensions of persons who obtain re-employment in the Public Service.
