HC Deb 22 February 1878 vol 238 cc153-4

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he has any objection to obtain and lay upon the Table of the House, a Return from all the County Court Judges in England and Wales, showing the number of Arbitrations which they have respectively undertaken, together with the amounts paid to them in respect thereof, during the years 1875, 1876, and 1877.


, in reply, said, he had consulted the Lord Chancellor upon the matter, and there would be no objection in presenting such a Return if the hon. Member would move for it. He might, however, say, that a rule was laid down by the Lord Chancellor, that no such arbitrations should be undertaken by County Court Judges.
