HC Deb 26 February 1894 vol 21 c1041
MR. SEXTON (Kerry, N.)

On behalf of the hon. Member for North Monaghan, I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether his attention has been called to the condition of the Magisterial Bench in New town butler, County Fermanagh; whether, in view of the fact that on the last Petty Sessions day, 20th instant, a number of people were greatly disappointed that their cases could not be gone into on account of there being no Magistrate to deal with them, he will direct the attention of the Lord Chancellor to the matter, so that some of the long-promised appointments to the Bench in this district may be made at once; whether he is aware that the Lord Chancellor has had a number of names submitted for his consideration some time ago; and whether he is aware that in this district, although Catholics form one-half of the population, they have hitherto been excluded from the Magistracy?


A Report has been called for in reference to this question; but as it has not yet been received, I must ask the hon. Gentleman to repeat the question on a, future day.
