HC Deb 17 May 1916 vol 82 c1538W

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware of the resentment occasioned in Scotland by the reported proposal that the Commissioners to adjust financial questions relating to married men called to the Colours should be chosen only from members of the Bar; and whether he will take measures to secure that no such restriction shall limit the class from which such Commissioners may be drawn?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. With regard to the second part, I do not see my way to recommend the measures suggested by my hon. and learned Friend. I may add that it is proposed in Scotland to utilise the services of Sheriffs-substitutes wherever that is possible.
