§ 49. Sir J. BUTCHER
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that interchange of civil servants between Great Britain and Ireland has been freely made in the past without loss of standing or right to pension; and whether, in the case of Irish civil servants who may be transferred for service in Great Britain, their service in Ireland will count towards pension in Great Britain?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Hilton Young)
The position as to eventual superannuation of existing Irish officers who became officers of the Government of Northern Ireland is dealt with by Section 55 (2) of the Act of 1920. The position of persons who became officers of the Free State on the 1st April, and may subsequently be transferred to Great Britain, will constitute a subject for arrangement.
