§ 64. Mr. T. JOHNSTON
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many counsel were briefed in addition to the Attorney-General for the prosecution in the recent trial of Vaquier; and what sums each counsel, including the Attorney-General, so engaged received?
I am informed that three counsel were engaged, in addition to the Attorney-General, at the trial of Vaquier. The question of remuneration has not been settled yet, but as soon as it has been settled, I will let my hon. Friend have the figures.
§ Mr. PRINGLE
Will the Treasury consider reviving the rules regarding the payment of Law Officers which prevailed when Lord Birkenhead was Attorney-General?
Obviously, I cannot commit the Government to that off-hand. It would require consideration.
