§ MR. T. M. HEALY
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Treasury Minute which obliges ail Civil servants to retire at the age of 70 will apply to the Professors in the Irish Queen's Colleges; and, if so, whether it will affect the present Professors?
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
The Order in Council of the 15th August, 1890, which renders compulsory the retirement of every officer at 65 years of age, extended in special cases to not exceeding 70 years of age, applies to the cases of all Professors, &c, in the Queen's Colleges who are entitled to superannuation. In such cases as the Professors, &c, do not give their whole time to the Public Service, and who are consequently not entitled to superannuation, the provision does not apply.
