HC Deb 10 February 1881 vol 258 cc486-7

asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, Whether it be the intention of Government to cause inquiry to be made by the Lord Chancellor and Committee of Judges in Ire- land into the working of the Judicature Acts in that Country in the same manner as has been promised with regard to the working of the Judicature Acts in England; and, if so, will the Lord Chancellor and the Committee of Judges he assisted by members of the Bar and solicitors as the Attorney General for England stated would be the case in the English inquiry?


Sir, I cannot say that it is the intention of the Government to cause such inquiry to be made as is indicated by the Question of my hon. Friend. The Government, I must point out to him, have no power of interfering in matters of this kind, which lie altogether within the control of the Judges.
