TitleCompulsory Retirement of Civil Servants
DescriptionPapers relationg to an Order in [HM's] Council, dated 15 August 1890. concerning the compulsory retirment of civil servants at the age of 65, which was challenged by the Corporate Body of QCG in 1895 over the retirement of the President, Sir Thomas Moffett/ The Lord CHancellor decided that the Order in Council of August 1890 did not apply to the Queen's Colleges. Further provision was made as to retirement, which was again challenged by QCG. The Corporate Body argued that they held office at the Sovereign's pleasure, while Dublin Castle argued that as they came under the pension scheme they were part of the permanent civil service. QCG eventually ceased to object. These two documents were entitled '65 Rule' and '1898 Tenure of Office' by Professor Senier.
