§ MR. P. STANHOPE (Wednesbury)
I beg to ask the Attorney General whether it is opposed to the traditions and proper professional conduct at the Bar that Members of the Bar, who are sons of County Court Judges, should locally settle for practice in towns within their father's districts, and should regularly practice in their father's Courts; and whether, considering the constitution and jurisdiction of County Courts, it is also calculated to shake public confidence in the administration of justice?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL(Sir R. WEBSTER,) Isle of Wight
My answer to the first paragraph of the hon. Member's question is in the affirmative. The second involves a matter of opinion, on which the hon. Member is as well able to form a judgment as I.
