HC Deb 27 July 1896 vol 43 c696

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies, whether any progress has been made in the matter of nominating a Colonial Judge as a member of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council?


The Chief Justice of the Cape Colony has been appointed a member of the Privy Council. I have received communications on the subject from the Governors of various Colonies of Australasia, and am expecting to hear further in a short time. I have not as yet received any communication from the Governor General of Canada.
