HC Deb 24 June 1858 vol 151 cc311-2

said, he wished to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether his attention has been called to the recent decisions in the Courts of Queen's Bench and Common Pleas in Ireland with respect to the defects in the form of the Affidavits generally adopted for registering Judgments on Mortgages in Ireland, and whether it is his intention to bring forward any legislative measure during the present Session in consequence of such decisions?


said, he was aware of the decisions referred to; but as they involved a delicate and difficult question, affecting property to the value of more than £1,000,000, the matter would require deliberate consideration. He would, if possible, in the present Session introduce a measure to obviate any inconvenience that might arise.
