HC Deb 22 January 1918 vol 101 c809
46. Mr. PETO

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the fact that the present salary of the Lord Chief Justice is £8,000 per annum, and the salary of Ambassador to the United States is £10,000 per annum, with allowance for clerk hire £475; whether the Lord Chief Justice will receive both of these salaries during the period when he represents Great Britain in the United States of America; if not, which salary he will receive; and whether the other or any portion of it will be paid for the performance of his judicial duties during his absence from the Kingdom?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs on the 17th instant to the hon. Member for North Somerset. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
