§ Mr. J. Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for War the numbers of civilian clerks in the War Department, Mauritius, who are to be retrenched on 30th March and October; whether they will be paid gratuities in accordance with the recommendations of the Ramage Report; and what plans the Government of Mauritius have for absorbing them in civil life.
§ Mr. F. Maclean
Sixteen between 31st March and 30th April and five between 1st May and 30th October. Their entitlement to gratuities will depend upon the United Kingdom Superannuation Acts and not the recommendations of the Ramage Report. They are being advised to register with the Mauritius Labour Department for employment.
