HC Deb 25 January 1897 vol 45 c386
MR. R. M. DANE (Fermanagh, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the rule of the Civil Service requiring officials to retire at the age of 65 years, applies to Resident Medical Superintendents of District Lunatic Asylums and their assistants?


No, Sir; the rule in question applies only to permanent Civil Servants of the Crown, and the Officers of the Lunatic Asylums are not Civil Servants.
