§ *MR. GERALD W. E. LODER (Brighton)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he can state how many Justices of the Peace in each County have been placed upon the Bench in virtue of their election to the Chairmanship of District Councils; and, if so, whether he has any objection to granting a Return to that effect?
§ *THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (MR. H. H. ASQUITH,) Fife, E.
I have not the information in my possession at present; but if the hon. Member will be satisfied with a Return, giving the total number of Justices in each County placed on the Bench in virtue of their election to the Chairmanship of District Councils, I am prepared to assent to a Motion for such a Return.
