HC Deb 30 July 1909 vol 8 c1544W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that there has been delay in the payment to the county Wexford pension clerks of their fees for the quarter ending 31st March; and can he state what is the cause of the delay?


The clerks of the county Wexford sub-committees claimed fees for 603 claims and questions, whereas it appeared from Returns received from the Board of Customs and Excise that only 553 claims and questions were dealt with. Payment of the accounts was delayed pending inquiries through the pension officers as to the precise number of claims and questions dealt with by each sub-committee. The accounts have now been paid.
