HC Deb 04 August 1965 vol 717 cc319-20W
37. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister without Portfolio by what criteria, in drawing the Commissioners of the Law Commission from a wide range of persons in the legal profession, he discriminates between those carrying out similar functions but receiving different rates of pay; and why in those circumstances they are not all paid at the same rate.

Sir Eric Fletcher

The salaries of the Commissioners, apart from the judge, were fixed at levels appropriate to the circumstances of the individuals whose services were required.
