Members about the delivery of papers in the form that best suits them.

That Act also provides that the Lord President of the Court of Session--who is also Lord Justice General of the High Court of Justiciary--and the Lord Justice Clerk are to be appointed by The Queen on the recommendation of the Prime Minister.

Its predecessor Department--the Welsh Office--spent £1,795,000 in 1996-97, £2,661,000 in 1997-98, and £2,685,000 in 1998-99.

The success of the Government's policies aimed at achieving sustained growth, sound public finances and stable inflation have provided the business sector with a sound platform from which to invest in the long-term future of Wales.
