HC Deb 08 April 1925 vol 182 c2248W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether he is aware that Mr. T. W. Bishop, until recently employed for 15 years at the Tower of London, Has been refused the usual gratuity, earned by his years of service, on a technicality connected with the circumstances of his retirement; and whether he will reconsider this decision?


The First Commissioner has given instructions for the circumstances of Mr. Bishop's retirement to be reconsidered in order to see whether a recommendation can be made to the Treasury for the grant of a gratuity.
