HC Deb 02 July 1888 vol 328 cc64-5
MR. HENRY H. FOWLER (Wolverhampton, E.)

asked the First Commissioner of Works, Whether he has yet been able to make arrangements with the Local Authorities of Newport (Monmouthshire) for the use of the muicipal buildings for the sittings of the County Court in that town?


I have not yet succeeded in making arrangements which would altogether meet the convenience both of the County Court Judge and of the Municipal Council of Newport, Monmouthshire; but I have some reason to hope that by mutual accommodation a satisfactory solution of these difficulties may soon be found. It is, at all events, out of the question to ask Parliament to vote money for the purpose of erecting a separate County Court in Newport, when it is clear that ample provision can be made in the existing municipal buildings of the town for the wants of all parties entitled to use them.
