N° 7 2.] ON FEES, G R A T U I T I E S , & c.-( ExcTe Duties.) 2y j and Seizures have been paid to them, to be afterwards accounted for. IT requires the Solicitor to produce Vouchers for all d. fburfements, and allows their Fees tor bunnels done according to regular and accuftomed Rates. In examining the Accounts he alfo reports to the Board fuch obfervations as occur to him. The dif- burfements on account of Fees to Counfel were allowed upon the production of the Lawyers receipts, but they now make no part of the Solicitors difourlements, as within thefe few years an Order has been made that the Account of iuch Fees should be furnished and certified by the Solicitor directly to each Board, whenever a Warrant is iffued for payment, but to whom it is made payable, Examinant cannot itate. When Examinant was appointed to his prefent Office, he found a Book containing the accuftomed Fees and Allowances to the Solicitors, and the cuftomary Fees to the Crown Lawyers and Board's Counfel. In the year 1805 Examinant was ordered by the Board to examine the Bills of Cofts furnished by the Solicitor for the King's Rents. He examines the Tots, to fee that they are correct, and the leveral items, to afcertain that the fame charges do not occur a fecond time; but he admits that he is incompetent to decide whether fuch charges are juft, or made at a fair and reafonable rate. He requires from the Examiner of Incident Accounts a Certificate of the feveral Sums advanced to the Solicitor, but no Vouchers are produced for Sums claimed credit for by him 011 account of difburfements.
