§ MR. MAURICE HEALY (Cork City)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he can now state the result of his communications with the Treasury as to the compensation to be made to Professor England, late of the Queen's College, Cork, for the injury sustained by that gentleman in having been compulsorily retired under the 65 rule, which was afterwards in Dr. Moffatt's case decided to have no application to such appointments?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. GERALD BALFOUR,) Leeds, Central
The case of Mr. England has been submitted to the Treasury, and the conclusion arrived at by them, after the fullest consideration, is that Parliament cannot reasonably be asked to grant him a special gratuity in addition to his pension. ["Hear, hear!"]
