§ SIR R. ASSHETON CROSS
asked the Lord Advocate, Whether the scheme for the improved remuneration of the Commissioned Clerks in the Office of Sasines in Edinburgh has yet been adjusted; what steps it is proposed to take with regard to the Engrossing Clerks; and, whether it will take effect from the beginning of the next financial year?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. M'LAREN)
The Report of the Committee is now under the consideration of the Treasury and Home Office, and the Deputy Clerk Register is at present in attendance at the Treasury settling with the officers of the Departments the details of the proposed new arrangements. It is hoped that the Report, with the decision thereon, will be laid before Parliament, if not before the Recess, at all events, immediately afterwards; and the new rules will, if not published before the 1st of April, date back to that day. The question of the position of the engrossing clerks is under the consideration of the Treasury at the present time.
