HC Deb 18 May 1893 vol 12 c1264

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the Report of the Departmental Committee which sat in Dublin early in January last with reference to the clerical and other office allowances to be paid to the Clerks of the Crown and Peace in Ireland, in view of the additional duties which they have to discharge under the Registration of Title Act, has yet been made; and, if so, will he cause it to be laid upon the Table of the House; and has the Treasury yet fixed the amount of those, allowances; if not, what is the cause of the delay?


The remuneration of the Clerks of the Crown and Peace and their allowances for clerical and office expenses under the Act to the 31st March last have been settled, and also their remuneration for the future. I expect to receive in a few days the Report of the Committee as to the future clerical and office expenses, and the Treasury will then be ready to fix the amounts to be allowed. I do not think that any good purpose would be served by laying the Report upon the Table of the House.
