This Bill is very similar to one which was introduced, if I am not mistaken, at the session before last. Its purpose is to provide a plan or scheme whereby certain members of the public service who, on account of old age or disability or for other cause, should be retired from the service. The Bill contains two methods whereby that may be done. In the case of those who are retired at or over sixty years of age the Bill provides for an annuity. In the case of those who are retired under sixty years of age the Bill provides for a lump sum gratuity. The details can be discussed on the second reading of the Bill or in the committee stage.
