HL Deb 14 August 1919 vol 36 c875

My Lords, I beg to make the Motion standing in my name. It is probably not necessary that I should say more than that I am satisfied that the proposed new paragraph should be added.

Moved, That Standing Order No. X, regulating judicial proceedings, be amended by adding at the end of the Order a new paragraph:—

ORDERED, That when the payment of costs is so ordered to a successful Appellant in an appeal in forma pauperis, the Taxing Officer shall not, on taxation, allow the fees of the House nor the fees of Counsel, but shall allow to the Solicitor his costs out of pocket, with a reasonable allowance (such allowance to be taken as three-eighths of the Solicitor's charges in "Dyes" Appeals, other than out-of-pocket costs) to cover office expenses, including clerks, etc.

—(The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
