HC Deb 21 March 1889 vol 334 c394
MR. ANGUS SUTHERLAND (Sutherlandshire)

asked the Lord Advocate who is responsible for the appointment of assessors to the Crofters' Commission; on what principle the recent appointments have been made; and whether, in making such appointments in future, care will be taken to appoint assessors in whom the Crofters have confidence?


The Commissioners are responsible for those appointments. I understand that the Commissioners endeavour to secure the services of men of skill, possessing such qualities as will command the confidence of both parties to the proceedings.
