§ Mr. GINNELL
asked the Secretary to the Treasury the amount paid out of public funds, in addition to salary, to each Law Officer of the Crown in England and Ireland in the financial year 1912–13, and the titles of the cases in respect of which those extra fees were paid?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
The fees were as follows:—
England— £ Attorney-General 9,764 Solicitor-General 6,415 Ireland— £ Attorney-General 1,272 Solicitor-General 1,156
I do not think I could give a list of all the cases for which fees were paid, but the most important were the "Titanic" Inquiry, the "Hawke" and "Olympic" case, the Peerage cases, the Gibson Bowles case, the Seddon case, the prosecution of Mrs. Pankhurst, and others, and the matter of the Eagle Public-house v. Truman, Hanbury and Co. and the Inland Revenue.
