§ MR. JAMES DALY (Monaghan, S.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, if he is aware that the labourers of different religious opinions in Castleblaney Union, South Monaghan, have asked that a 1133 magistrate in agreement with their views should be appointed; and, whether he will give effect to their wishes, and appoint to the Commission of the Peace the person they recommend?
THE CHIEF SECRETARY FOR IRELAND (Mr. GERALD BALFOUK,) Leeds, Central
I have twice already replied to questions addressed to me in this matter by the hon. Member, and I can only repeat that the Lord Chancellor has received a communication in favour of an additional appointment to the Magistracy in South Monaghan, but that at present he sees no sufficient reason for making such an appointment.
§ MR. W. JOHNSTON (Belfast, S.)
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether anyone can be obtained to represent all religions in Ireland? [Laughter.]
