§ 53. Lieut.-Colonel FREMANTLE
asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that the Islington Borough Council propose to superannuate their medical officer of health after 39 years' efficient and energetic service (10 years under the corporation of Sunderland and 29 years at Islington) at a rate which is not fixed on any definite scale, and is far below that usually granted to executive officers; and seeing that the Superannuation (Metropolis) Act, 1866, provides for the payment of superannuation at the rate of one-sixtieth of salary for every year of service, that the Act is intended to apply without discrimination between the employes of local authorities, that the Islington Borough Council have adopted this Act in superannuating their roadmen, scavengers, and other labourers, and that the medical officer of health has requested the protection of the Minister of Health against the non-application of the scale in his case, will he say what steps he proposes to take in the matter?
§ Sir A. MOND
I am making inquiries as to this case, and will inform my hon. and gallant Friend of the result.
