HC Deb 21 November 1882 vol 274 cc1789-90

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether he will agree to include, in the Return of Justices of the Peace in Ireland, lately ordered by the House, particulars of the designation, profession, or occupation of each person at the time of his appointment to the Commission of the Peace; and, whether the Return will be so prepared as to distinguish between the different classes of magistrates, namely, the ordinary Justices of the Peace, the Resident, Special, and Superintending Magistrates, Queen's Counsel, Mayors, Coroners, Justices appointed under the Towns Improvement Act, and any other persons who exercise magisterial functions in Ireland?


Sir, I see no objection to including in the Return referred to the further information which the hon. Member wishes for. I cannot say that it can be all given, or that it will be entirely accurate; but I will give orders to have the Return made so as to meet the hon. Member's wishes as far as possible.
