HC Deb 29 April 1898 vol 56 c1535

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, if a secretary of the county council in Ireland retires under the provisions of Section 72, Subsection 5, of the Local Government (Ireland) Bill, his retiring allowance will be calculated on his salary as secretary of the grand jury, plus the fees received by him during his one year of office for his duties in preparing the franchise and jurors' lists?


The superannuation allowance of a county secretary retiring under the section referred to in the Question would, presumably, be calculated on the basis of the average salary and emoluments received by him during the past three years, this being the Civil Service scale. Any dispute arising as to whether particular emoluments should be included for the purpose of computing a pension would be determined by the Treasury.
