HC Deb 06 August 1912 vol 41 cc2909-10
45. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Prime Minister why certain judges of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council receive, and others do not receive, salaries; and whether this matter is under consideration in view to uniformity of treatment?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

There are no salaried members of the Judicial Committee, but under Section 30 of the Judicial Committee Act, 1833, two-members of the Judicial Committee who attend to hear appeals from India are paid certain sums of money as an indemnity for the expense they may incur. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative.
