HC Deb 02 May 1928 vol 216 c1707

asked the Minister of Labour if the new chairmen of the Court of Referees have been appointed for the city of Glasgow under the new Act, and if the lay members have been appointed; and, if so, will he state the names of the chairmen and lay members?


As regards the chairmen, four, namely, Mr. Reid, Mr. Stewart, Mr. Chalmers and Lieut.-Colonel Menzies-Anderson, D.S.O., M.C., have appointed. It will probably be necessary to appoint two others. As regards the members of the panel, I understand that the appointments are on the eve of completion, and I will send the hon. Member a list of the names in due course.


How many of these are legal gentlemen or are they all legal gentlemen; and has the hon. Gentleman appointed any deputies, or does that constitute the full appointment?


I cannot answer the second part of the hon. Member's supplementary question without notice, but I will let him know. I think all these gentlemen have legal experience.
