§ Mr. BOOTH
asked how many Members of the House have received their salaries for the quarters of June and September; whether any junior Member of the Government, not a Minister of the Crown, has been paid a salary as a Member of this House; whether a Charity Commissioner or an Ecclesiastical Commissioner, in receipt of remuneration as such, has been also paid a salary as Member; and what is the position of any honourable Member who is in receipt of a political pension?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
Orders for payment of salaries for the quarters ended 30th June and 30th September have been sent to all Members entitled to them, i.e., to all Members not receiving salaries as members of the Government or as Officers of the House. Ecclesiastical Commissioners receive salaries as Members, their official salaries (if any) not being paid out of public moneys. The Charity Commissioner who sits in the House receives no salary as Commissioner. A Member in receipt of a political pension receives salary as Member but the amount is deducted from his pension, as provided under the Official Pensions Act, 1870.
§ Mr. PRINGLE
Can the right hon. Gentleman say why the two Members of the House of Commons who are advocates depute in Scotland do not receive their salaries?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many Members of the House of Commons have returned the 522 warrants to the Treasury for their salaries or expressed a desire that in future they shall not receive salaries as Members of Parliament?
§ Mr. KELLAWAY
Would it be possible for the House to be supplied with the names of the hon. Members who have decided to retain their amateur status?
