§ MR. HOGAN (Tipperary, Mid)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that considerable public inconvenience has been occasioned for some time past in the town of Templemore, County Tipperary, from the dearth of local Magistrates; whether local gentlemen, willing and qualified to act as Justices of the Peace, were recommended for appointment several mouths ago; and whether he will endeavour to expedite the appointment of additional Magistrates for Templemore and district?
THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND Mr. J. MORLEY,) Newcastle-upon-Tyne
No complaints have been made to the Lord Chancellor as to the dearth of local Magistrates at Templemore. A Resident Magistrate is stationed there, and the Petty Sessions appear to be fairly attended. One of the Magistrates recently appointed by the Lord Chancellor will attend the Templemore Sessions. The names of two other local gentlemen for the Templemore district were suggested to the Lord Chancellor; but his Lordship did not consider that be could appoint them to the Commission. The Lord Chancellor is always ready to consider the names of any properly qualified persons that may be brought before him.
