HC Deb 11 March 1936 vol 309 c2129
52. Mr. HOPKIN

asked the Minister of Agriculture the income of, and the salaries paid at, the Crown Manors Office, Lampeter, and how the income is made up?


I have been asked to reply. The office known as the Crown Manors Office, Lampeter, is the private office of a local solicitor who acts as deputy steward, bailiff and collector of the rents of a number of manors belonging to the Crown in the counties of Cardigan and Carmarthen. No annual salary is paid by the Crown to the solicitor for his services, but he receives a commission at the end of each year on moneys collected by him on behalf of the Crown.


How much did that amount to last year?


Perhaps the hon. Member will give me notice of that question.
