86. Every person summoned to testify before an arbitrator is entitled to the same taxation as witnesses before the Superior Court and to the reimbursement of his travelling and living expenses.
Such taxation is payable by the party who proposed the summons, but the person who receives his salary during such period is entitled only to the reimbursement of travelling and living expenses.
Where a person is duly summoned on the initiative of an arbitrator, the taxation is payable in equal shares by the parties.
