HC Deb 22 June 1981 vol 7 cc15-6W
43 Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Attorney-General whether he will give a detailed list of the Crown briefs given to Mr. Paul Chadd QC since 1972 and the amount of payments made for these briefs.

The Attorney-General

Since I took office on the 7 May 1979, Mr. Paul Chadd QC has received four briefs for the Crown. The fees paid to him were paid for professional services by counsel in private practice and it would not be appropriate for me to give details of them. Mr. Chadd's fees are assessed and taxed by the courts on the same basis as are the fees paid to all other counsel.
