§ Mr. COOPER
asked if the staff of the registrars and high bailiffs of County Courts were appointed and their salaries fixed and paid by the Home Office, or by the judge or higher officials of the County Court in which they were employed?
§ Mr. McKENNA
The registrars are appointed by the County Court judge, subject to the approval of the Lord Chancellor. The high bailiffs are appointed by the judge. All are removeable from office by the Lord Chancellor. Salaries are settled by the Treasury under limits prescribed by Statute, the Lord Chancellor's concurrence being required in certain cases.
