HC Deb 16 May 1892 vol 4 c963
MR. T. HARRINGTON(for Mr. MAGUIRE,) Donegal, N.

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether Government officials appointed under similar circumstances to the Privy Council Veterinary Inspectors, Ireland, are now entitled to superannuation allowances; and whether, if so, he is prepared to reconsider the unsatisfactory position of officials connected with so important a branch of the Public Service as the Veterinary Department, Ireland, with a view of redressing their grievances with respect to superannuation allowances, as set forth in a recent memorial presented to him?


The officials referred to were appointed on the understanding, and with the full knowledge, that they would not be entitled to receive any superannuation allowances. I do not feel myself in a position to propose a change in their conditions of service.
