said, he had a question to put to the Chancellor of the Exchequer. A Bill now stood for Monday, to regulate the salaries of the County Court Judges. That Bill placed the salaries to the charge of the Consolidated Fund. He therefore desired to ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he would be able to lay on the table of the House an estimate of the amount which would be placed to the charge of the Consolidated Fund by the provisions of the Bill?
THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
said, that he had no objection to lay on the table the best estimate the Government were able to form as to the charge on the Consolidated Fund of those salaries. The Bill would not be taken till Friday next, and before that time he would endeavour to lay the estimate on the table.
§ MR. ROEBUCK
said, he hoped that the estimate would show the distinction between the amount paid by the Consolidated Fund and the amount paid by fees.
