HC Deb 14 April 1896 vol 39 c884
*LORD HUGH CECIL (Greenwich)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, whether his attention has been called to the case of Mr. J. Jordan, lately deer-keeper in Greenwich Park; and, whether the Treasury are prepared to concede Mr. Jordan abolition terms on his retirement?


Power to grant abolition terms is strictly limited by the Superannuation Act to cases in which retirement results in both efficiency and economy. The Treasury will grant to Mr. Jordan the full abolition addition (if any) consistent with the above statutory limitation. I am not, however, satisfied that any saving is shown by the reorganisation, though, no doubt, there will be greater efficiency.
