§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Attorney-General if he will give the cost to public funds of the Bow street hearings on Commander Bothwell.
§ The Attorney-General
No Bills of costs have yet been presented for taxation, and when taxation is complete the hon. Member will be aware that it is not the practice to publish individual fees. In addition, the cost to public funds will include the costs of court hearings which cannot be assessed except as an arbitrary component of the overhead costs of administering the court. In addition there will be costs of the other Government Departments concerned to which similar consideration apply.
