HC Deb 07 April 1873 vol 215 c647

for Mr. JACOB BRIGHT, asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether the Government propose to act on the unanimous Report of the 31st March from the Civil Services Expenditure Committee; and, if so, whether they will notify such intention to the new Master of the Rolls on his appointment?


Sir, the office of Master of the Rolls is vacant, and when the appointment is filled up—and that step cannot be long delayed—we shall take care that the proper course is taken in relation to the Report of the Committee.
