HC Deb 03 May 1898 vol 57 cc178-9
DR. CLARK (Caithness)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury what sums were paid to the Attorney General and Solicitor General, respectively, for contentious Government business during the year ending 31st March, 1898?


The information for which the honourable Member asks will appear in due course in the Appropriation Accounts for the year 1897–8. But I am unable to state the amounts at present, as most of the Departments have not yet furnished their Returns to the Treasury.
