HC Deb 27 April 1899 vol 70 c705
MR. MACALEESE (Monaghan, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland if he is aware that at a recent meeting of the Committee of Management of the Queen's Jubilee Fund in Dublin the police pensioners, who are subscribers to the fund, had not proper representation; and if at future meetings of this Committee, at least one police pensioner from each county will be allowed to be present to take part in the deliberations?


The rules governing the Queen's Jubilee Fund of the Royal Irish Constabulary do not provide for the representation of pensioners on the Cmmittee of Management. Consequently pensioners were not represented at the meeting referred to. The fund is not a public fund, and the question of the representation of pensioners on the committee is one for determination by that body and the Board of Headquarters Officers.
