§ MR. HOZIER (Lanarkshire, S.)
asked the Lord Advocate, Whether the sum of £1,429, referred to in last Tuesday's evidence before the Joint Committee on Private Bill Legislation, as having been paid to the Glasgow Boundaries Commissioners and their clerks, was paid by the Treasury or by the City of Glasgow?
§ THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. J. H. A. MACDONALD) (Edinburgh and St. Andrew's Universities)
The sum in question was paid by the City of Glasgow.
§ MR. HOZIER
Arising out of that answer, may I ask the Lord Advocate whether it is customary for one of the parties interested in the decision of a Commission to recompense the Members of the Commission?
