§ Mr. MALCOLM
asked if any and, if so, what compensation or allowance can be made to the dependents of Mr. J. Carroll, late clerk to the surveyor of taxes at Lewisham?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
The Treasury have authorised the award of the gratuity and the additional allowance under the Superannuation Act, 1909 (together £29 3s. 3d.), to which Mr. Carroll's length of service entitled him. They have no power to make any grant to his dependents in addition to this award.
