§ MR. W. H. SMITH
asked Mr. Attorney General, If his attention has been called to the arrear of business in the Chancery Division of the High Court; and, whether steps will be taken forthwith to remedy the great public injury resulting from the present state of the business of the Courts?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir HENRY JAMES)
, in reply, said, there was, no doubt, a very large amount of Business in arrear, and the attention of the Lord Chancellor had been called to it. There had already been 80 causes referred from the Chancery Division to what was now called the Queen's Bench Division. He could assure the right hon. Gentleman that every effort would be made to relieve the Court of Chancery as much as possible.
