HC Deb 20 July 1932 vol 156 c2277
57. Lieut.-Colonel A. POWNALL

asked the Secretary for Scotland what action has been taken to increase the existing scale of fees to defray the expenses of the Sheriff Courts on the same lines as is done in England, as recommended in the Geddes Report?


A Committee was appointed by me in November last to consider, inter alia, the fees payable in the Sheriff Courts. In accordance with the recommendations of the Committee, the fees were considerably increased as from 1st April last.
