HC Deb 12 March 1869 vol 194 cc1187-8

said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether it is the intention of Government to fill up the office of Queen's Remembrancer in Scotland, vacant by the death of Mr. Henderson?


said, in reply, that the office of Queen's Remembrancer in Scotland was of very considerable importance, as in him was vested the power of auditing accounts and controlling expenditure. He could not, therefore, give his hon. Friend to understand that no provision would be made for the performance of these duties. It was only yesterday that the account of Mr. Henderson's death had been received, and there had been no time for considering what alterations might be made in the present arrangements.
