HC Deb 05 May 1904 vol 134 c542

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state on what grounds the Armagh Board of Guardians have recently proposed to raise their master's salary from £75 to £100 per annum; what is the pension drawn as ex-head-constable by the present master; and whether the Local Government Board intend to sanction the suggested increase of pay.


The grounds on which the proposed increase is based are the completion of five years' efficient service; economy in the management of the workhouse and consequent saving to the rates; exclusion of tramps; increased duties, etc. The Local Government Board will sanction the increase. The master is in receipt of a pension of £58 a year from the Constabulary.
