§ MR. COX (Clare, E.)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether it is a fact that some officers of the Inland Revenue, removed on complaint from one station to another, are allowed their expenses of removal out of the public funds; and, whether other officer of similar rank, and removed under similar circumstances, are refused any expenses; and, if so, why the Commissioners of Inland Revenue make such a difference in the treatment of their officers?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
As a general rule, officers of Inland Revenue, when removed from one station to another on complaint, are not allowed their expenses of removal out of public funds. Each case, however, is dealt with on its own merits; and an exception to the rule is occasionally made in cases where it is considered advisable and in the public interest that an officer should be removed, although not actually guilty of any act calling for censure.
