§ SIR HERVEY BRUCE
asked Mr. Solicitor General for Ireland, Whether the holding of a Court by the Sub-Commissioners in Ireland on Good Friday, which is a Bank Holiday, was legal; and, if legal, whether he could in future prevent the holding of a Court, which is contrary to usage, on a day on which the majority of the places of Public Worship in the United Kingdom are open for Divine Service?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. WALKER)
Sir, there is nothing illegal in the Court of Sub-Commissioners sitting on Good Friday. It is for the Land Commission to regulate the days of sittings. On the particular occasion to which, I presume, the hon. Member refers, the Sub-Commission sat at the special request of the principal professional men, and for their convenience.
