MR. MORTON (for Mr. BRAND, (Cambridge, Wisbech)
I beg to ask the Attorney General whether it is competent, or in accordance with ordinary practice, in cases coming before a County Court Judge, that a son of the said County Court Judge should plead on behalf of one of the parties?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir C. RUSSELL, Hackney, S.)
I have to say that it is competent for a son to appear before his father, but I cannot say that there is any practice one way or the other. It is a question of good taste.
