§ 64. Captain Kerby
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs upon what basis, or according to what formula, he fixes the sums paid out of public funds, in the form of lump sum grants or financial settlements, to Foreign Office officials who have been requested to, or have themselves asked leave to, resign from Her Majesty's Service.
§ Mr. Turton
Payments are made to established staff in accordance with the appropriate Section of the Superannuation Acts, or, in the case of women resigning because of marriage, in accordance with the relevant Treasury minutes.
Unestablished staff who resign their appointments may receive a gratuity either in accordance with Section 39 of the Superannuation Act, 1949, if they have completed seven years' continuous service, or in accordance with the terms of their engagement.
