§ MR. COX(for Mr. O'KELLY) (Roscommon, N.)
asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether his attention had been called to a report stating that the conduct of Messieurs Webb, Whitby Lynch, and Kirkwood caused a disturbance in the Boyle Borough Court; whether these gentlemen are Justices of the Peace for the Petty Sessions District of Boyle; and whether they are in the habit of hearing and deciding cases in which 641 one or other of them is interested; and, if so, whether the Government will call the attention of the Lord Chancellor to the matter?
§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Sir MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH) (Bristol, W.)
I have no information which would enable me to make any communication to the Lord Chancellor with regard to the Justices named in the Question. I would point out to the hon. Gentleman that persons aggrieved may themselves make complaints to the Lord Chancellor.
