§ Mr. WATT
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the annual amount of public money paid, either as salary or as pension, to the twenty-three judges who 50W have held or are holding high judicial office and are qualified to sit for the hearing of appeals in the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
I am informed that there are now only twenty-one judges qualified to sit on the Judicial Committee. Of this number only sixteen receive any payments from British funds and these payments amount to £ 63,712 18s. 8d.
