HC Deb 30 July 1888 vol 329 c733
MR. O. V. MORGAN (Battersea)

asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether any, and what, decision has been arrived at as to the superannuation to be granted to the men who have for many years been employed at Battersea Park, and who have been dismissed by the Metropolitan Board of Works since that Body has taken over the control of the Park?


The Act which transferred Battersea Park and other Parks from the Office of Works to the Metropolitan Board of Works preserved all rights of pension to men in our employment as if they had been retained in the Public Service, the Treasury to decide in each case the amount in question. This the Treasury has done, and has informed the Metropolitan Board accordingly. It remains for that Body to take all other necessary steps.
