AILFRID O BROIN: To ask the Minister for Home Affairs whether it is a fact that a large number of existing Civil Servants are entitled to have the Provisions of the Superannuation Act of 1909 applied to them on retirement; whether on voluntary retirement, or on being retired or discharged in consequence of the change of Government, or on abolition of office, the provisions of that Superannuation Act will continue to apply to them. If not, will he state on what grounds those provisions are being withdrawn.

 Mr. K. O'HIGGINS: Any Civil Servant who is discharged or who retires in consequence of the change of Government is entitled under Article 10 of the Treaty to compensation on terms not less favourable than those accorded by the Act of 1920. As already announced in the Dáil, the Government has set up a Committee consisting of two official representatives and two representatives of the staff with an impartial Chairman to advise as to the compensation payable and all matters connected therewith, and I must decline to prejudice the proceedings of that Committee by making any statement of the Government's view on matters yet to be decided by the Committee. Any Civil Servant, of course, who comes under the Superannuation Act, 1909, is entitled to have any compensation which may be awarded to him computed under that Act.
