HC Deb 31 March 1885 vol 296 cc1096-7

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Judge of the Court of Probate has forwarded any Letter and Memorandum to the Irish Executive, relative to the parts of the Supreme Court of Judicature (Ireland) Bill affecting the Court over which he presides; and, whether he will lay such Letter and Memorandum upon the Table? In putting the Question the right hon. and learned Gentleman said he hoped the; Bill would not be taken on the first day the House re-assembled. He would like an assurance that it would not be taken until, at all events, a week after the House re-assembled.


Yes, Sir; I have received a letter and memorandum from the Judge, and they are at present under consideration. I will see whether they can be laid upon the Table of the House. I cannot say when the Bill will be taken, but there is no intention to take it the first day the House re-assembles.
