HC Deb 11 February 1875 vol 222 c214

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government, in view of the admission made last Session as to the inadequacy of the salaries of Petty Sessions Clerks in Ireland, to introduce any measure during the present Session for the increase of those salaries?


I have no intention of bringing in any measure with reference to the salaries of petty sessions clerks in Ireland; but the subject has engaged my attention during the Recess, and I hope by an improved application of the income derived from the "Fines Fund" to effect a material improvement in the salaries of those who most require it.
