§ 76. Mr. C. WILLIAMS
asked the Lord Advocate how many of the maters of the Court of Session are appointed by private individuals; and by what rights, statutory or otherwise, are these appointments made?
§ The SOLICITOR GENERAL for SCOTLAND (Mr. Normand)
The answer to the first part of the question is one, and the right of appointment depends on a Crown Charter granted in 1690 and ratified by the Scottish Parliament in 1693.
§ Mr. WILLIAMS
May I ask who this individual is, and why he should retain this right, when the House of Commons does not even allow the King to have it?
