§ MR. T. E. ELLIS (Merionethshire) (for Mr. BRUNNER) () Cheshire, Northwich
asked the President of the Local Government Board, Why the Court of the Revising Barrister for the Polling District of Great Sanghall is held at Chester, outside the Parliamentary Division of which Great Sanghall forms a part, which results in claimants, overseers, and agents having to walk 10, and in some cases 14, miles; and, whether this inconvenience can be removed?
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. MATTHEWS) () (who replied) Birmingham, E.
said: I am informed by the Clerk of the Peace that Chester was appointed by the Court of Quarter Sessions as on the whole the most convenient place at which to hold the Revising Barrister's Court, it being the market town of the inhabitants of Great Sanghall and the other townships included in the district,; and also the place where the Petty Sessions for the district are held. Any alteration cannot now be made by Quarter Sessions in time for this year's revision; but the question will be brought j forward and considered by the Justices previously to the revision in 1888.
