HC Deb 07 February 1913 vol 48 cc227-8W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what payments were made by the Admiralty during the financial years 1905–6, 1906–7, 1907–8, 1908–9, 1909–10, 1910–11, 1911–12, and the expired portion of 1912–13, to Members of Parliament being barristers, giving the name and amount in each case?


The following payments were made:—

£ s. d.
1907–8.—To Sir W. S. Robson Solicitor-General (Bermuda Dockyard Extension Arbitration) 19 16 0
1908–09.—To Sir S. T. Evans, Solicitor-General (Pembroke Jetty Contract) 45 2 11
1910–11.—To the Right Hon. A. Lyttelton, K.C., M.P. (Malta Dock Extension Arbitration) 628 3 8
1910–11.—To the Right Hon. A. Lyttelton, K.C., M.P. (His Majesty's Ship "Mohawk" Arbitration) 75 12 1

It is possible that there were other payments as defined by my hon. Friend, but the preparation of a complete statement would involve an amount of labour which. I think, would scarcely be justified by the result.
