§ Sir D. HOGG
The number of officials employed in the Supreme Court of Judicature in receipt of salaries of £1,000 and over per year is at present 52, and the amount expended £76,200, to addition to war bonus, £11,403 9s.—a total of £87,603 9s. The corresponding number in 1913–14 was 66, and the total expenditure £96,395. Two of these officials were on a scale rising to £1,000, but had not then reached the maximum of the scale. There are now, in addition, eight officials in receipt of a remuneration of salary and bonus combined of £1,000 or over per year, involving a total expenditure of £8,497 2s. The corresponding officials in 1913–14 numbered eight, and their total salaries amounted to £6,425. Furthermore, three officials were employed in 1913–14 upon salaries amounting to £2,400 who, if they were still employed, would be in receipt of a combined remuneration in excess of £1,000 each. These officials no longer exist, and their places have not been filled. The total comparable figures are, therefore, 1913–14: 77 officials, total cost £105,220. Present day, 60 officials, total cost £96,100 11s.
