§ MR. M'CARTAN
I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether he is aware that a number of important Judgments delivered in the High Court of Justice in Ireland, in cases under the Criminal Law and Procedure (Ireland) Act, have been collected in a volume and published by the Queen's printers in Ireland; whether copies of this volume have been supplied to the Crown Solicitors, Sessional Crown Solicitors, and Resident Magistrates throughout the country;, whether he can say at whose request this volume was published; and if copies, will be supplied to Irish Members of Parliament or to Irish lawyers at a fair price?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. MADDEN,) University of Dublin
The volume referred to was printed by the direction of the Government for the information of Magistrates. It was also supplied to Crown and Sessional Crown Solicitors. It has been the constant practice of Government to have Reports of important cases printed by the Queen's printers for private use, and not for public sale; and there would be difficulty in departing from this course on the present occasion.
