MR. MAC NEILL (Donegal, S.)
asked Mr. Solicitor General for Ireland, Whether Her Majesty's Government will consent to the insertion of a clause in the Supreme Court of Judicature (Ireland) Bill, providing for the voluntary retirement, on suitable pensions, of officers and clerks of the Probate and Matrimonial Division of the High Court of Justice, whose duties shall be changed, or on whom new duties shall be imposed, in the event of the Bill becoming Law?
§ THE SOLICITOR GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. MADDEN) (Dublin University)
The Government will not oppose the insertion of a clause in the Bill affording to the officers of the Probate and Matrimonial Division protection against the imposition of new duties similar to that contained in the 7th clause of the Bill with regard to officers attached to the Queen's Bench Division of the High Court.
