§ LORD CLAUD HAMILTON
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether a gentleman had been appointed to the Recordership of Liverpool; and, if so, whether he had received any communication from the Corporation of Liverpool with regard to the salary attaching to the office; and whether any reply had been sent?
THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. CHILDERS)
said, he should reply to this Question on Monday, the Notice of it having only reached him a short time ago.
§ In reply to Sir E. ASSHETON CROSS,
said, that the appointment rested with the Home Secretary, and not with the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster.
