§ Mrs. René e Short
asked the Attorney-General what was the average hourly sum paid, under legal aid arrangements, to solicitors and barristers, respectively, during 1974, 1975 and 1976.
§ The Attorney-General
I regret that this information is not available. Time is only one of the factors to be taken into consideration in determining such remuneration; and there are no readily available records which quantify the time element separately.
