HC Deb 09 April 1897 vol 48 cc862-3
MR. C. E. TRITTON (Lambeth, Norwood)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the payment of the salary of a clerk in a law office, aged over 65, having been objected to and it having been ascertained that the Treasury Minute, dated 12th December 1890, did not apply to the law offices, and Bills having been introduced into Parliament in the Sessions of 1893, 1894, and 1895, with, a view to the making of similar regulations for the retirement of the clerks and others in the law offices, any steps have been taken since the Bill of 1895 was withdrawn to carry out the recommendations of the Ridley Commission in the law offices?


I understand that an Order making regulations as to the retirement of clerks is about to he issued by the Presidents of the Divisions of the High Court.
