§ MR. SUMMERS (Huddersfield)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether the Government will consider the advisability of referring to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council the determination of the question whether Roman Catholics are or are not eligible to hold the offices of Lord Chancellor of England and Lord Lieutenant of Ireland in the same manner in which it is proposed to take the opinion of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council with regard to the state of the Marriage Law in Malta?
§ *MR. W. H. SMITH
The Government are not prepared to adopt the course suggested by the hon. Member.
