§ MR. J. E. ELLIS (Nottingham, Rushcliffe)
asked the hon. Member for Mid Cumberland, as one of the Charity Commissioners, Whether the recent appointment of an Assistant Charity Commissioner involves any increase in the total sum to be voted for the salary of that Commission during the year 1888–9?
§ MR. J. W. LOWTHER (Cumberland, Penrith)
, in reply, said, the appointment referred to did not involve any increase in the total sum voted for the salaries of the Charity Commission. The appointment had been made in the place of Mr. Hare, who had retired after more than 34 years' service, and the salary during this year would be less than that of the retiring Assistant Commissioner by £300.
