§ THE CHIEF SECRETARY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR) (Manchester, E.)
As the hon. Gentleman is aware, it does not rest with me to "permit" the Land Court to do anything in the way of hearing cases. I am as anxious as anybody that the arrears now lying in this Court should be dealt with; and, as the hon. Gentleman is aware, there is a Bill before the House, which I hope will be discussed to-night, dealing with this very question.
