HC Deb 24 May 1894 vol 24 cc1159-60
MR.ROSS (Londonderry)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland is he aware that great inconvenience is experienced by the traders and the commercial classes in the North-West of Ireland owing to the absence of a Local Bankruptcy Court; has a Memorial been presented to the Lord Lieutenant by the Londonderry Chamber of Commerce praying for the establishment of a Local Bankruptcy Court in Londonderry, pursuant to the Local Bankruptcy (Ireland) Act; and will the necessary steps be taken for the establishment of such a Court?


The Memorial referred to in the question has been referred to the Lord Chancellor, who is now making inquiries into the matter, and will submit his recommendation with the least possible delay.
