§ 35. Mr. TOUCHE
asked the Secretary to the Treasury if the Lords of the Treasury will give favourable consideration to an application by Mr. J. E. C. Larter to be granted a year's salary, with the usual curtailed superannuation allowance, in terms of Circular 17,219/470 of 12th October, 1910, on his retirement this month from the prison service, notwithstanding his having omitted to avail himself at the proper time of the terms of the minute embodied in the circular; and, in considering the merits of the application as an exceptional case, will they keep in view that Mr. Larter is compelled to retire on the grounds of ill-health, after thirty-three years' service, and take into account the special circumstances set forth in his application?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
I regret that I do not see my way to accede to this application. Mr. Larter has been awarded the pension for which he is qualified under the Superannuation Act, 1859.
