Unionist

Mr. DOHERTY:

As at present constituted, there is but one judge of the Exchequer Court, with an assistant judge. This measure does not propose to call in the assistant judge of the Exchequer Court, but the judge of the Exchequer Court, or if he is unable to act, a judge of the Superior Court of any of the provinces. The reason the measure had to he premised by a resolution is simply that it makes provision that where an outside judge is so called in he shall toe paid his travelling expenses and the ordinary per diem living allowance which is allowed under the general law to any judge who is called upon to serve at a place other than the place of his residence.

Topic:   SUPREME COURT ACT AMENDMENT.
Subtopic:   AD HOC JUDGE.
