I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, having regard to the fact that a sum of £2,067 17s. 9d. was expended last year for service of Law Agent in Scotland for the Woods and Forests and other Departments, will he state how much of that sum was expended for the Woods and Forests Department, and how much for each of the other Departments?


The sum of £2,067 17s. 9d. expended in the year ended the 31st March, 1897, for the services of Law Agents in Scotland, included £660 5s. 6d. on behalf of the Office of Woods and Forests. The other Departments for which payments were made were: the War Office, Office of Works, Treasury, Board of Trade, Scottish Prisons, Science and Art Department, Accountant of Court, Edinburgh, Queen's and Lord Treasurer's Remembrancer, Scottish Education Office, Secretary for Scotland and the Lyon Office. I will furnish the honourable Member with a statement of the amounts paid for these Departments respectively.
