§ 67. Mr. KILEY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether another referee has now been appointed to consider objections to the commodities included in the list of articles published by the Board of Trade under the Safeguarding of Industries Act; if so, can he state if any salary or fee has yet been paid; and under what authority or Vote this will appear?
§ Sir R. HORNE
No additional referee has been appointed to consider objections of the nature described, which arise under Section 1 (5) of the Act. The Lord Chancellor has appointed Mr. Gerard M. T. Hildyard, K.C. as referee to determine any disputes arising under Sections 1 (4), 10, or 11 of the Act. Payment of Mr. Hildyard's fees will be made out of the Vote for the Customs and Excise Department, but, so far, no fees have been paid.
