§ MR. WATT
1 beg to ask the Lord Advocate if he is aware that an official of the Extractors' Department, who had to discontinue his duties owing to ill-health after forty years' service, has not yet received any superannuation allowance or gratuity, although it is now nearly two years since he left; and if he will take steps to remedy this state of matters.
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. THOMAS SHAW,) Hawick Burghs
The Answer given by me to my hon. friend on the 16th instant covers this Question.†This matter, as I explained, depends upon rules of the Treasury, and any further question upon the subject should be addressed to that Department.†See (4) Debates, clxxii., 953.
