Clause 120 (Compensation to existing officers).


said, he begged to move an Amendment to this clause, which he thought would prevent any injustice from occurring—

Amendment moved, At the end of sub-section (1.) insert ("except that in the case of a freehold office the officer holding any such office at the time of the passing of this Act shall be entitled to compensation calculated upon his salary and emoluments for the live years immediately preceding the passing of this Act").—(The Lord Herschell.)


thought that the words erred on the side of excess, as they might be held to mean that the compensation was to be the actual gross amount of the salary and emoluments. He would suggest that the noble and learned Lord might bring up amended words on the Report stage.

Amendment (by leave of the Committee) withdrawn.

Clause agreed to.
