§ MR. HEALY (Cork)
asked Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, Whether it 656 is the practice at Assizes and Commissions in Ireland for Crown Solicitors to make inquiries, subsequent to each criminal trial where a jury has disagreed, for the purpose of ascertaining who the jurors were who were in favour of an acquittal, so that such jurors may in succeeding cases be ordered to stand, by; and, whether, if so, he will direct this practice to be discontinued?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. HOLMES) (Dublin University)
No, Sir; no such practice exists as that referred to by the hon. Member.
