Record NG6/7/429

Archive reference number NG6/7/429

Letter to the Secretary, H. M. Treasury

Date 1 Aug 1881

Conveying the request of the Trustees of the National Gallery that the decision

given by the Lords Commissioners of H. M. Treasury regarding the Superannuation

Act of 1859 be reconsidered in light of the fact that the Director was appointed

prior to the change in his position. A long argument in protest against the

removal of the Director from the benefits of Clause IV, which the Trustees feel

will have a detrimental effect on the National Gallery. Also carries an argument

in favour of the inclusion of the Keeper of the National Gallery in the benefits

of the Superannuation Act 1859 on the basis of the arduous nature of his duties.
