§ Mr. Maclean
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what is the average cost of one night's stay for a judge in a judicial lodging. 147W
§ Mr. Hoon
In the financial year 1997–98, the average daily cost for a judge (and clerk) to stay in judicial lodging was £615.18. New systems to improve control and reduce costs progressively over three years were implemented last year, and it is intended that these will be reviewed after that three year period.
