§ 73. Mr. WATT
asked the Lord Advocate whether the sixteen sheriffs-principal in Scotland are, after their appointment, permitted by their patents to practise at the Scottish Bar, at the Parliamentary Bar, at the Bar of the House of Lords, and before the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council; and whether he proposes in the future to give some of these appointments to whole-time servants of the State?
§ Sir G. YOUNGER
May I ask in point of fact whether, if the right hon. Gentleman gave effect to this suggestion, he would have to go to the Treasury for a very large increase in the salaries?
