HC Deb 23 February 1883 vol 276 c714

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, When an appointment of Her Majesty's Lord Lieutenant and Custos Rotulorum of and for the Queen's County will be made; and, whether, in the selection thereof, regard will be had to the circumstance that, at present, there are but nine Roman Catholic magistrates out of seventy-nine on the roll of justices in a county where eighty-six per cent, of the population are of that persuasion?


In reply, I have to say that the Lord Lieutenant has already appointed Lord De Vesci to the offices named.
