§ MR. KENNEDY (Kildare, N.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, with reference to the vacancy which has been created in the lieutenancy of Kildare by the death of the Duke of Leinster, whether, in view of the fact that the Bench in Kildare is mainly composed of landlords and Conservatives, while there are practically no men on the Bench in sympathy with the general body of the population, it is intended, in filling up the lieutenancy, to appoint some person whose views are in sympathy with the majority of the people of Kildare?
§ MR. ASQUITH (for Mr. J. MORLEY)
The question of filling the vacancy which has been created in the lieutenancy of Kildare is at present receiving the consideration of the Chief Secretary. He will give the matter careful attention before any recommendation is made.
