§ MR. H. H. FOWLER
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether the Return as to Judicial Patronage, ordered in February last, will be laid upon the Table of the House before the Second Reading of the Judicature Amendment Act?
§ SIR WILLIAM HARCOURT
Sir, I much regret that this Return has not been made before. I communicated a week or so ago with the Lord Chief Justice upon the subject, and I have had an assurance from him that the Return will be prepared as soon as possible. It rests with the Lord Chief Justice altogether, and I am unable to say when the Return will be received.
