§ MR. J. P. FARRELL
I beg to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether the Government is bound to 485 provide special trains to carry Her Majesty's Judges on circuit in Ireland; and can he state the approximate cost per Judge of those trains; is the amount charged on imperial or local taxes; and, if the latter, is it levied by presentment?
§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. J. ATKINSON,) Londonderry, N.
The Government are not bound to provide special trains for the conveyance of the Judges on circuit in Ireland, nor, as a matter of fact, are such facilities provided by Government. It is quite possible, of course, that railway companies occasionally do supply special trains to meet the convenience of the Judges, but if any extra charge is ever claimed it is defrayed solely by those who use the trains.
