I IO Appendix, N° 64. ( D.) ( E.) Appendix, N° 65. ( D. ( E.) Appendix, N01 64 & 65. ( Ireland.)— Eighth REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS [ Excife mio- ht probably amount to in any year we are unable to afcertain ; but fuppofino- them, at all events, not to exceed the allowances granted to the Solicitors in 1791, we eftimate, that by difcontinuing all payments to the Crown Lawyers for preparing Money and Regulation Bills, as alfo the allowance made to the Senior Counfel to the Revenue for pre- paring the former, an annual laving would be effe& ed to the amount of £ 3,730, on the average of the expence fo incurred in the two years ending the Uh January 1808. Whether it may be thought proper to carry our iiiggeftions on this fubjed into effect, no delay ought, we conceive, to be permitted to take place in fixing fome definitive mode for con- ducting in future this branch of the public bufinefs. At the Union, the Public paid amply for the arrangement then propoled for this purpofe. Since that period thefe Bills have been prepared, as already Rated, fome- times in England and at others in Ireland ; but if the mode latterly pur- fued be long perfevered in, and a change 011 oeconomical principles afterwards adopted, the different Officers will have a plaufible pretext for claiming compenlation, to which, from the pradlice having been fo various, we fubmit they would not now be entitled. It may not be un- important to exhibit a view of the payments, appearing by the Accounts furnifhed to 11s, to have been made to the feveral Law Officers, and to the Solicitors of Cuftoms and Excife, exclufive of their falaries, in each of the five years ending 5th January j8o8. The payments to the feveral Law Officers are as follows ; viz. Appendix, N0' 64 & 65. Appendix, N0s 78,79, & 80. It is to be observed, that in the payments made in the last year, but not in any of the preceding, are included the Fees, however of no con- siderable amount, paid to Counfel by the refpective Solicitors of the King's Rents, forfeited Estates, and cafual Revenues. The difference in fome years between the amount of the emoluments of the Senior and Junior Counsel to the Revenue, is principally occafioned by the payments not being made to each within the fame year; but allowing for the Fee on the Money Bills, to which the Senior Counfel alone is° entitled, the amount of their Fees will on an average nearly agree. In the fame five years, the following payments appear to have been made to the Solicitors for Law business and Disbursements. Years
