HC Deb 08 March 1910 vol 14 c1438W

asked whether the Treasury will grant a gratuity, under Section 2 (i) of The Superannuation Act, 1900, to the widow or children of the late James William Smith, a second class Admiralty clerk with over twenty-eight years' service, who died suddenly after the passing of the Superannuation Act, but before the rules under the Act came into force, and who had signified his intention of adopting the Act as soon as he was able to do so?


I regret to say that the Treasury have no power to make any grant in this case.
