HC Deb 09 August 1972 vol 842 c467W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Attorney-General whether he will give the detailed costs involved in the legal processes of the container dispute including the National Industrial Relations Court, Appeal Court, and appeal to the House of Lords on the fines imposed upon the Transport and General Workers Union and the total legal costs involved in all legal matters pertaining to the imprisonment of the five dockers in Pentonville Prison; and what fees were paid to the Counsel involved.

The Solicitor-General

The costs of private litigants who are not legally aided are a matter for them. The only calculation which will be made of the Official Solicitor's costs in connection with the case of Midland Cold Storage Limitedv. Turner and others will be as to his disbursements in the form of fees to counsel. These have not yet been settled.
