HC Deb 26 March 1897 vol 47 c1440
MR. JASPER TULLY (Leitrim, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the Dublin Mercantile Association have made frequent complaints to the Lord Chancellor as to the unsatisfactory state of the Law in Ireland relating to the recovery of debts in undefended cases in the county courts, and have asked that the office of sub-sheriff in the different counties should be brought directly under the control of the court, and the office made a permanent one similar to that of the high bailiff in England; and whether he can state if the Irish Government are prepared to take steps to remedy the matters complained of?


The Dublin Mercantile Association has made representations to the Lord Chancellor in reference to the matters stated in the Question, and those representations are under consideration.
