HC Deb 03 August 1882 vol 273 c584

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether it is the fact that Mr. W. M. Miller, R.M., of Armagh, who for over twenty years has retained the respect and confidence of all classes in his district, by his integrity and independence, has received notice of his compulsory retirement; whether, though growing old, Mr. Miller is still both active and painstaking; if so, on what grounds, and on whose recommendation, the Government are going to supersede him; and, if he can state by whom he will be succeeded?


Mr. Miller was the senior of all the Resident Magistrates, and was one of those whom His Excellency considered should, in the interests of the Public Service, be invited to accept the terms of retirement offered to certain Resident Magistrates on account of age or infirmity. He will be succeeded in Armagh by Major Traill.
