HC Deb 09 February 1897 vol 46 c24
MR. E. H. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S. W.)

I beg to ask the Attorney General how it is proposed to make good to the Queen's Bench Division the loss occasioned by the withdrawal of Sir Richard Henn Collins from his ordinary duties in consequence of his membership of the Venezuelan Arbitration Tribunal?


It is wholly premature to consider at present the question of supplying the place of Sir Richard Collins. The sittings of the arbitrators will not, I believe, take place before the middle of 1898, and I have no doubt that the Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice will, when the time comes, consider whether any arrangement is to be made in consequence of the learned Judge being a member of the Arbitration Tribunal.
