HC Deb 21 February 1865 vol 177 c498

said, he would beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade, Whether the Members of the Parliamentary Bar have come to any agreement, that the practice before Parliamentary Committees shall be open to the Bar in general, on the same terms in regard to fees as prevail in the ordinary Courts of Law and Equity?


said, that he was led to the conclusion, from the inquiries he had made, that a counsel practising before Committees of the House was at liberty to accept any fee which he might regard as a proper and adequate remuneration for the duties he was discharging. He concluded that counsel might accept any fee that the Bar in general might take in the ordinary course of practice.
