HC Deb 18 May 1868 vol 192 c426

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, By whom the legal business in Ireland of the Customs and Merchant Shipping Department of the Board of Trade is conducted, since the removal from Ireland of the late; Solicitor to the Board of Customs?


said, that for some time past the business of the Department had been conducted by a clerk in correspondence with head quarters in London. The clerk was now about to be withdrawn, as the business had not increased. There would be no difficulty, however, in conducting the business in the Solicitor's office in London, but local attorneys would be employed in prosecutions.
