§ SIR G. TREVELYAN
By the Returning Officers (Scotland) Act, 1891, Section 3 and Schedule, a Returning Officer may make a maximum charge of Is. per mile for travelling expenses of Presiding Officers within the Sheriffdom, but it is provided that the charges are in no case to exceed the sums actually paid or payable. When 3d. per mile only, therefore, has been paid, it would seem illegal to allow any farther charge.
