§ MR. JOHN DILLON (Mayo, E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, is it the intention of the Government to reappoint Mr. Walker-Craig, Q.C., locum tenens for Mr. Roche, the County Court Judge for Down, having regard to the fact that Mr. Craig contested one of the divisions of that county at the late General Election?
MR. PATRICK O'BRIEN
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, whether it is intended to appoint a locum tenens for the County Court Judge of Down for the coming County Courts; if so, whether it is intended to appoint Mr. J. Walker-Craig, a gentleman belonging to the county, having relatives in it, formerly a Parliamentary candidate for the same county, and invited again to become a candidate?
