HC Deb 03 March 1909 vol 1 c1560W

asked whether the land surveyors and draughtsmen employed in the Irish Land Commission and General Valuation Office are permitted to perform for hire or fee work in connection with their trade or calling for individuals who are not in the public service?


The surveyors and draughtsmen of the Land Commission are bound to give their whole time during official hours to the work of the Land Commission, and they are not entitled to undertake any private work in such official hours. They have not permission outside official hours to perform for hire or fee work in any way connected with business pending in the Land Commission for individuals not in the public service. Land surveyors and draughtsmen in the General Valuation Office are not permitted to perform for hire or fee any work during the hours they are employed in that office, or when they are on Government work in the country.
