§ MR. KENNEDY
said, he would beg to ask the right hon. and learned Gentleman the Attorney General for Ireland whether it was the intention of Her Majesty's Government to take any steps for providing an increase of salary for the clerks of Nisi Prius in Dublin, in consequence of the increased duties and expenses imposed on them—1, by the establishment of the Consolidated Nisi Prius Court in Dublin; and 2, by the Act called "The Common Law Procedure Act?"
MR. J. D. FITZGERALD
said, in the first place he must inform the hon. and learned Gentleman that to make any alteration legislation would be necessary, and, having regard to the position of Irish business and the facilities given, he did not think it wise to add another to the string of Bills upon the paper for the present Session. The matter was under consideration with regard to these and other officers, with a view to place them on a permanent and more satisfactory footing.
