§ 36. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the Law 315 Officers did no legal business for the Post Office in the year 1912–13; will he say how many years it is since this occurred before with that Department; and if he will account for this unusual occurrence?
§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)
The hon. Member is under a misapprehension. During the year 1912–13 the Law Officers appeared for the Post Office in the Telephone Arbitration, and their opinion was sought by the Post Office in various other matters of a non-contentious character.
§ Mr. GINNELL
Will the right hon. Gentleman explain why no extra charges appear in this particular year, while they do in other years?
