§ MR. HOWELL (Bethnal Green, N.E.)
I beg to ask the Attorney General whether Mr. P. J. Eaton, the actuary of the Macclesfield Savings Bank, is still on the Commission of the Peace for the borough of Macclesfield; and whether the attention of the Lord Chancellor has been called to the evidence given before the Commissioner at the inquiry into the affairs of the Macclesfield Savings Bank, and especially that portion of the evidence which relates to the actuary and the way in which the position of a Justice of the Peace was obtained, or sought to be obtained; and, if so, whether the Lord Chancellor has come to any decision in the matter?
SIR R. WEBSTER
I am informed that Mr. Eaton is still on the Commission of the Peace. The matter is still engaging the attention of the Lord Chancellor.
