HC Deb 18 June 1874 vol 220 cc75-6

asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, If he will explain to the House why the Office of the Accountant General of the Court of Chancery, Ireland, should be closed for the purpose of making up accounts from the first of August till the second of November, during which time no one can receive dividends due on money lodged in this Court, while in England the office of the Accountant General of the Court of Chancery is kept open for the payment of dividends during the whole year?


in reply, said, that he was not aware whether the offices referred to were closed during as long a time as was mentioned in the Question of the hon. Member. It was proposed, however, by the Judicature Bill for Ireland to take power to deal with all matters of the kind, and to make rules both for the Courts and the Offices connected with them. It was, therefore, not necessary to pursue the question further at present.
