HC Deb 09 August 1878 vol 242 c1637

asked Mr. Attorney General, If his attention has been called to the many great inconveniences arising from the entire closing of the offices of the Taxing Masters of the High Court of Justice during the Long Vacation; and, whether the Government contemplate taking any steps to prevent the continuance of such in-conveniences?


in reply, said, it was incorrect to say that the Taxing Masters' Offices were entirely closed during the Vacation, because one Taxing Master was always in attendance throughout the holidays, in order to take all business of a pressing character referred to him by the Courts. Whether, however, sufficient facilities were or were not afforded he had not been informed. Neither did he know whether there was any difference between the Chancery Division and the other Divisions; but he would make inquiries into the subject, and would give the matter his best consideration during the Recess.
