§ MR. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)
asked Mr. Attorney General, Whether, having regard to the additional powers and responsibility conferred on and vested in the eight Chancery Taxing-Masters, by Order 65 of "The Rules of the Supreme Court, 1883," and the Rules of December 1885, and to the fact that the fees earned 27 by them amount on an average to £32,215 per annum, showing an annual profit, after payment of their salaries and the salaries of their clerks, of between £9,000 and £10,000 per annum, the Government will take under their consideration the propriety of appointing an additional Taxing-Master, making the ninth, thus completing the number contemplated and provided for by section 5 of the 5th and 6th Vic. c. 103?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir CHARLES RUSSELL) (Hackney, S.)
, in reply, said, he would take care that this point was submitted to the Lord Chancellor?
