HC Deb 12 December 1928 vol 223 cc2144-5W

asked the Home Secretary, in view of the fact that, as a result of correspondence between his Department and the Essex Standing Joint Committee, a recommendation has now been made that the salary for the joint appointment of the clerk of the peace and clerk to the county council should be £10,000 per annum, with a personal remuneration of £2,000, leaving the officer concerned responsible for payment of the staff, whether, before giving his sanction to this arrangement, he will satisfy himself that the staff so engaged shall not be precluded from superannuation and other conditions of local government service, including salary scales?


The recommendation was varied as a result of correspondence in order to comply with the law, and has been acted upon; the re-fixing of the salary does not materially affect the staff in any way, and the Superannuation Acts will apply to such staff as if they were in the direct service of the local authority.
