The Commissioners do not receive any remuneration by way of salary, but their travelling and personal expenses are paid, and the payments are regularly audited by the Exchequer and Audit Department. The Commissioners inform me that they do not think it desirable to give details as to the attendance of individual members of their body, as they consider that no useful purpose would be served by furnishing this information.
