HC Deb 23 August 1889 vol 340 c243
MR. TUITE (West Meath, N.)

I beg to ask the Solicitor General for Ireland whether he will give the name of the Roman Catholic Magistrate who attends at Antrim Petty Sessions; at what place and in what Petty Sessions district does he reside, and what distance is his residence from the town of Antrim; and whether he will state how many times during the last 12 months this Magistrate attended Petty Sessions in the town of Antrim?


It appears that it is not usual to state the religious denomination to which a particular Magistrate belongs. The gentleman referred to resides, it is believed, in the Petty Sessions District of Crumlin. Antrim appears to be his post town. I have not received information as to the distance of his residence from it, but presumably it cannot be far. The reports of the attendances of Magistrates at Petty Sessions are furnished yearly to the Lord Chancellor's Secretary's office after 31st August. The information for the current year has not, therefore, been yet received there. During the previous year this Magistrate attended once.
