My Lords, in calling upon the heads of the other departments oi bis M^}esty's civil government to enter upon a levision of thar respective establisliments; with a ^ew to such economical rediictions as may'fjifil the intentioiis of his Majesty, expressed ini his' answers to the addrc�6e� of both Houses of Pailiamentj think it right! to state the prindples upMr which they have pio-ceeded,..and the course diey nave^fbHowed iii' the reviaon of the esublishment df die'Treasnry underthei): immediate direction. They have thonghr that they'sliduld best-carry into'exeeution the intentions-expreaaed in the addresses of FaHiament, by keeping in view.the following general i ules :- 1st: Tlotemy office war to be-iestored to the situation in re spect to the number of p�r3ona employjed, and of their respective emoluments, ui iMch itstbod in 1797,; unless someadeqiute cause oontihoed to exist wfaidi rendered soirie altenition necessary in iiitdie, and that the mode of regalation iHiidi seems in ^11 respects most digiMe, is ta require, that theJadividaak themselves who may heiettfla ei^oy tlie benefit of Aipemonas* tion alliiwanees, should be called upotf to contriimte to a superannuation iiindr to be administered under the direction of tlior Lordships, and acoordi^ to the ibllQwing relations, viz. 1st. .^Hjporsons holding offices, the salaries or pecuniary emo. laments of which, ^ler revision, amount together to lOOl. a year, or upwards, and who are entitled to superannuaddn under the aa'M 6eo. IIL, c. 117, to codtribtite S per cent; of such ealade^-or emolilmenu tb a fimd to be enled '^TheGoieral Su-peranbualipa FUiid," CMy lords: will b^e under further oma-doftion ilrKat dii�ctions ^ali be given'with xe^iect toefficn not amoutldng td'ioel. B'vear.) Sd. My lords are of opiniod, th/ttin adffition to the abovente, whiA may- be consider^ as a fair contribution to be required fium the individuals who may be entitlcd-to superannuation under the act of the 50tb CWge lU. c. 117, in aid^of the charge m curred by the public in xes^t thereof, a further contribiidon may justly be required from those who are ill possession of emoluments which have been ihcrieased since 1797, and which are greater than it is intended hereafter pemiariinidy to attaich to their respective situations. They therefore think that persons holding.offices, the salaries of whidh are hereafter to be reduced, shouldnbie called upon to pay an additional contribution of two and a half per cenu upon all offices exceeding .lOd. a year, and not exceeding *Q0l. Five per cent, from 50oL and not exceeding l,00ei^ And ten per cent: exceeding 1,(HkA. Provided that the increase of such respective salaries since 1797 shall have been not less than double the amount of the additional contribution hereby required. Such additibnal'Cdntributions respectively to cease whenever the parties paying the saine shall be promoted to a situation entitled^ under the new r^ulations, to asahury equal to that which they now possess. fthj No superannuation to be granted to any such contributor, except by- the Treasury, and by that board only, at four periods to be flted in each'year (except in cases of immediate urgency), when a special board or boards shall be held lor the purpose of considering all applications received in theprecedmg quarter; notice of which board shall be ayea to the heuis of the depart> ments recommending^ such ap^ications, froni each of which some proper o�Seer sfaalU if. required, attend to answer aU such questions as the board of treasury may put, in order to enable them to decide upon the fimess or relative urgency of each application; and to distribute the disposable amount of the fun^, or so miich of it as may be requisite, in such manner as, upon an examinatiod of all the cases before them, may appear mo:it cow-ducive to justice and the public interest. 7th'. The interest aocrumg upon the contributions to be ap))lietl in the first instance to the expense of management of the fund, and the remainder to accumulate for- the benefit of it. tb. If the aggregate sum now paid in superannuation allow, ances to public servants who hold i^es coming within the description of the first article, shall be found-to exceed-one-tenth of the aggregate amount of the salaries and l)ecuniiu'y onolu-InBients a� all the: said offices, the new superannuations to be granted in any one year shall not exceed one-half of the saving arising irbm such of those allowances as may have elapsed in the preoBcung-year, until the whole sum so granted shall be reduced to ten p^r cent, or under that amotmt, m conformity to the 4th larticie. My Lords are further of opinion, that it will be proper to propose to Parlianaent'torepeal the several ratesof allowances enacted by the 5th Geo. IIL cap. 117, and to substitute the following in tientisereof, viz^.>- Above ten years' service, and not exceeding 15, 4 12ths of the sal^: abtove -15; and not�xGeeding 80, &-l2du ; above SO, and not exceeding S5, &-i2ths; above 2S, and not exceeding 30,- 7-12th!s; above �0, and not exceeding 3jr, 8-l2ihs; above ai^ And not exceeding 40,9-12ths; above 40, and nut exceeding ;45, 10-12ths ; above 45, and not exceeding fO, ll-l2ths ; and above 5Q, the whde. Such reflective allowance* to be calculated upon the sahiry and pecuniary emoluments of the office, as Lbaiged to the paynoient made to the contribution fund; mi in ho case to exceed the net sum received by the officer ai'ter the de-dtietion-of sucb payment. My Lords are awaie, that notwithstanding the extreme importance of adhering t0 this scale as mndias possible, there na^ arise ^>eaal cases which it would be difficult to for^ee or enumerate, with respect to which some dieparture from this scale ' ma^ become indispensable, and that authority to provide accordingly should be reserved to their Lordships; they are of opinion, however, that it should be enacted, that in all such circumstances the cases should be laid before Parliament, togetlier with a- relent ofth^ cnrcumstances winch have led their Lordships to make tlie exception. My Lords, in calling upon the heads of the Other departments of his Maj^ty's Civil Government to enter upon a revision of theirrespeotiTe establishments, with a view to such economical reductions asmay^ fulffi the intentions of his Majesty, ex -ressed itfhiir answers to. the'addresses of both tiouaesof Pailiament, think it right to state the principles upon .which they have .proceed^, ana the course they^bave followed, in the revision of^th'e establiflhiBeat of the Treasury under their immediate diieetion. Tfiey have thought that they should best carry into execution the ihUjuiioiib-ieiepreBSed intheadUresses uf P&rHament, by keeping in view the following general rules :- 1st Triatevery office was to be restored to the situation, in re^>Qct^fa> the number of per^ns employed, and of their respe;.-tive emoluniedfo, id irhTch'it stood in 1797,1 a nd the amount of Uieir emoluments in some parts of the offi which no greater iimaber of omcers simuld be retohietV tlnn w S necessary tor the execution of thebusinesM of the Treuniry in itk present stutc, enlarged 4s it has been by the iueorporatlmi of tlie whole business of tiie Irish Treasury, as well as greatr^lncreaSiMl in olher respects, and in wliicb the emblutnen** of taih class of officers should be as iK^Iy assimihited ta>'tiK>!jej>f corresponding situations in 1797, aa the alteration of the circuimtunces of tlie office would fairly adait. Such a plan haVhM Men prepared accordingly; and approved Iw their Lordships, mpyhart directed tltat tlie new ei>tabhsiinient shall be considered b.vernuient departments. A;� ter-inspecting the Dock-yanl ,and Barracks, his Excellency dined with Sir B. Hallowell, and on Friday, af^er continuing his visit to wiiatever was worthy of notice, he dined with Sir R.
