§ VISCOUNT CURZON (Bucks, Wycombe)
I beg to ask the Attorney General whether the estate qualification for the appointment of County Justices must necessarily be in respect of property 560 held in the county for which it is proposed to appoint such Justices?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir R. WEBSTER, Isle of Wight)
There are, as my noble Friend is probably aware, two qualifications—one the ownership of property, the other occupation, As regards the property qualification, it is not necessary that the property should be situated in the county for which the owner is to act as a Justice of the Peace. As regards the occupation qualification, a property occupied must be situated in the county.
