HC Deb 01 May 1893 vol 11 c1631
MR. HAYDEN (Roscommon, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, having regard to the report in The Law Gazette as copied into The Irish Law Times of 15th April, 1893, stating that the Lord Chancellor was bringing pressure to bear on officials of the Supreme Court of Judicature over the age of 65 years to enforce their retirement under the Order in Council dated the 15th August, 1890, he would state if the Lord Chancellor of Ireland is bringing similar pressure on the officials of the High Court of Justice in Ireland who are also over the age of 65 years?


The Lord Chancellor has seen the article referred to in the question. The Act of 1879, referred to by Lord Herschell, does not apply to Ireland; but the Lord Chancellor of Ire-land considers it desirable that whatever regulations may be ultimately applied to the legal establishments in England should also be applicable to the legal establishments in Ireland.
