HC Deb 28 February 1867 vol 185 c1143

said, he wished to ask the Vice President of the Council, Whether it is true that a sum of £52 10s. is to be allowed to each English Juror on account of travelling expenses to and from the Exhibition at Paris; and, if so, whether this sum includes the whole amount to be given to each Juror, or whether he will receive any further payment?


Sir, the English jurors attending the Paris Exhibition will be entitled to receive fifty guineas each, as payment in full for their travelling expenses and all other expenses whatever. It is supposed that each juror will be required to remain in Paris for at least six weeks, and a great number of them for a longer period. No remuneration will be given to them for their services, which will be rendered gratuitously.
