§ 29. Mr. PATRICK MEEHAN
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether Sir George Holmes, the Chairman of the Board of Works (Ireland), is about retiring; if so, can he state the date on which his retirement will take place; can he say whether Sir George Holmes has accepted the new superannuation scheme; and what retiring allowance he is at present entitled to?
§ Mr. W. BENN
Sir George Holmes is retiring in October next on reaching the age limit. He was not entitled to adopt the provisions of the Superannuation Act, 1909, being over sixty years of age at the date of the passing of the Act. His application for superannuation has not yet been received by the Treasury.
