HC Deb 07 August 1972 vol 842 c312W
Mr. Galbraith

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has for legislation on the subject of the expenses of the Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

The allowance payable to the Lord High Commissioner, which is limited to £7,500 by the provisions of the Lord High Commissioner (Church of Scotland) Acts, 1948 and 1959, is no longer adequate to meet the expenses of the office, and I propose to introduce legislation next Session to raise the limit.
