HC Deb 23 July 1896 vol 43 c463

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether the Lord Chancellor has yet arranged for the more frequent sittings of Irish County Courts; whether he is aware that for 13 years past this question has been under consideration; and, whether special facilities in this respect will be given to Irish towns as at present accorded in Great Britain?


An Order in Council is now being prepared providing more frequent sittings for civil business by the Recorder of Dublin. This was the main topic pressed upon the attention of the Lord Chancellor by the important deputation he received, and, upon a close examination of the subject, it was not thought desirable at present to interfere with the general sittings of County Courts in Ireland, but the Lord Chancellor has his attention directed to the subject.
