Superannuation Act, 1909

Compensation on abolition of office.

6.(1) It shall be lawful for the Treasury to grant to any person retiring or removed from the public service in consequence of the abolition of his office, or for the purpose of facilitating improvements in the organisation of the department to which he belonged, by which greater efficiency and economy can be effected, such special allowance or allowances by way of compensation as on a full consideration of the circumstances of the case seem to the Treasury to be a reasonable and just compensation for the loss of office, but not exceeding in any case the amount which a civil servant would be entitled to, or which might be granted to a civil servant, if he retired on the ground of ill-health.

(2) The foregoing provision shall apply only to persons entering the service after the date of the passing of this Act, and shall apply to those persons in substitution for section seven of the Superannuation Act, 1859.

Nothing herein contained shall affect the application of the said section seven of the Superannuation Act, 1859, to persons who have entered the service before that date or the practice of the Treasury thereunder.
