HC Deb 31 July 1877 vol 236 c220

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If it is the intention of the Lord Chancellor to partition the Sussex County Court district among the neighbouring circuits; and, if so, whether, before carrying this intention into effect, he will give the people of Sussex, and the inhabitants of Brighton, an opportunity of expressing their views on the subject?


in reply, said, he had consulted the Lord Chancellor in regard to the subject, and was informed that the arrangement of County Court districts were always open to readjustment, more especially when vacancies in the Judgeships occurred. The propriety of a re-adjustment of the Sussex County Court district would be considered, and nothing would be done to abridge the accommodation which the public now enjoyed.
