TABLE of Fees to be taken by the Officers of Her Britannic

Majesty's Consular Court for Morocco.

[Approved by the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs,

February 17, 1891.]

Fees in Supreme Court of Gibraltar. All matters of whatever nature coming before the Supreme Court of Gibraltar

shall be governed, so far as affects any proceedings therein, by the Table of Fees for the time being in force in the Supreme Court.

Poundage. All poundage, except where otherwise herein specified, shall be estimated upon

the amount or value of the subject matter of the proceeding upon which it

is payable. In every case where the poundage cannot be estimated by any of these Rules,

it shall be estimated on 501. The hearing fee on interpleader shall be estimated on the amount of the

money or the value of the goods claimed, which value, in case of dispute, shall be assessed by the Court, who, at the hearing, shall direct by whom

and when and how such fee shall be paid. Poundage on judgment summonses under section 63 is calculated on so much

of the amount of the original demand as, under the order of the Court, is

payable at the time of the issue of the summuns. In suits for the recovery of tenements, when the term has expired or been

determined by notice, all poundage shall be estimated on the amount of the weekly, monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or yearly rent of the tenement, according as such tenement shall have been let by the week, month, or longer period; and if no rent has been reserved, then on the amount of the

half-yearly value of the tenement, to be fixed, if necessary, by the Court. All fractions of a pound, for the purpose of calculating poundage, shall be

treated as an entire pound.
