HC Deb 27 November 1912 vol 44 c1272

asked the total costs incurred by all sides in the recent Income Tax case of Mr. Gibson Bowles; the total annual remuneration and expenses of the law officer or officers on whose advice Mr. Bowles's contention was resisted; whether the officer or officers will be retained in the service; and whether the payments to them will suffer any diminution in consequence of their wrong advice?


So far as at present ascertained the total costs incurred were £838 9s. 5d. With regard to the second part of the question I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for the Tavistock Division on the 24th ultimo. The answer to the third part, of the question is in the affirmative, and to the last in the negative.
