§ 47. Mr. T. WILLIAMS
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, since the operation of the Superannuation Act of 1859, the powers conferred upon the Commissioners of the Treasury under Section 7 of that Act, have been exercised in favour of any civil servant retired on account of abolition of office; and, if so, will he give instances showing to what extent the section has been exercised and the department or departments concerned?
The Section in question applies to all awards of compensation on abolition of office made to civil servants who entered the service before the passing of the Superannuation Act, 1909. Such awards in accordance with the practice in force for some years before that date continue to be calculated in all cases with reference to the actual years served, without any addition of years thereto.
I think the Section is still in operation in regard to persons who entered the service before the date of the passing of the Act of 1909.
