§ Mr. BOTTOMLEY
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he could state the total sums paid up to the present during the current financial year to the two Law Officers of the Crown, respectively?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Hobhouse)
A Return of the total amount of fees paid to the Law Officers of the Crown is given annually in the Appropriation Accounts; and I do not think that any advantage would be gained by giving a Return for a broken portion of the financial year. The details required would have to be collected from many different Departments.
