§ MR. COURTHOPE
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney-General what sums have been expended in connection with the appeal against the West Riding local education authority; and what further cost is anticipated in connection with the case.
§ SIR JOHN WALTON
said he had communicated with the Solicitor to the Treasury. The appeal was at present in the most elementary stage. Some fees had been incurred in connection with the presentation of the petition in the case, but at present it was impossible to forecast what might be the total cost of the appeal, or how much of that might, under the judgment of the House of Lords, fall on the country.
