§ MR. PULESTON
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Why the Queen's letter giving the Lord Chancellor jurisdiction in lunacy in Ireland has not yet been sent; and, whether he is aware of the serious 1764 inconvenience arising from the fact that there has been no one in Ireland with jurisdiction since the change of Government took place?
THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. JOHN MORLEY)
I do not know why this Question was not addressed to a Representative of the Treasury. I am informed by that Department—through which the necessary Queen's Letter giving the Lord Chancellor jurisdiction in lunacy matters issues—that there has been some accidental delay in connection with it; but that it has now been submitted for the Queen's signature, and will be forwarded to Ireland as soon as the necessary formalities have been completed.
