MR. T. E. ELLIS (Merionethshire)

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether a Registrar and High Bailiff of a County Court is eligible as a candidate for the County Council?

THE PRESIDENT (Mr. RITCHIE) (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)

, in reply, said, it would be inadvisable for him to advise as to the qualifications of candidates for the County Council. The disqualifications were set forth in Section 12 of the Municipal Corporations Act. His private opinion was that the Registrar of a County Court was not legally ineligible.
