The remuneration paid to chairmen of Courts of Referees is £3 3s. a sitting. Members of the Courts do not receive remuneration, but are entitled to travelling expenses, subsistence allowance, and, in certain cases, compensation for lost time on a scale approved by the Treasury, of which I am forwarding a copy to my hon. and gallant Friend. There is no grade of officer with the title of divisional inspector, but if further details are supplied I will endeavour to furnish the information desired.
