§ 39. Mr. CROOM-JOHNSON
asked the Home Secretary whether it is proposed to recommend the councils of cities and boroughs in England to consider the question of making cuts in the salaries of recorders and other judicial officers paid out of borough funds in order to secure equality of treatment with His Majesty's Judges?
Sir H. SAMUEL
As respects local expenditure such as this, which does not involve any charge upon the Exchequer, the attitude of the Government has been defined in a circular issued by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Health on the 11th September; and I should not feel justified in going beyond the terms of that circular.
§ 65. Sir COOPER RAWSON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the aggregate amount anticipated to be saved by the reduction of 20 per cent. of judges' salaries?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Philip Snowden)
The saving involved in the reduction of the salaries of His Majesty's Judges is approximately £50,000 in a full year.
