HC Deb 05 June 1891 vol 353 cc1722-3

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if, when granting the application to stamp deeds in Belfast, he will grant a like application to stamp and seal writs of summons (out of the Superior Courts), thereby saving considerable time and expense to the public, and placing Belfast in the same position to Dublin as Liverpool and other cities hold with London?


I am informed that it will be useless to extend the stamping facilities at Belfast to writs of summonses unless such writs are sealed there also, but there exists in Ireland no machinery for the creation and maintenance of a district office of the High Court of Justice outside of Dublin.
