§ *THE LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. A. GRAHAM MURRAY, Buteshire)
There is no such person as Trumpeter to the Court of Justiciary. The hon. Member probably refers to an allowance of £80 which is made to one of the Trumpeters of His Majesty's Household for attendance on the Court of Justiciary, This is all. The new appointments have been altered, and a small daily fee is now paid. The allowance in question is paid to the sole remaining old trumpeter who was engaged on the former condition, and even if it were legal I should not think of depriving him of his allowance in his old age.
