HC Deb 11 August 1898 vol 64 cc911-2
MR. MACALEESE (Monaghan, N.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the number of magistrates ap- pointed or recommended by Lord Ross-more on the Commission of the Peace for the Newbliss petty sessions district, and how many of them are Catholics?


My right honourable Friend has already more than once informed the honourable Member that the Lieutenant of the county Monaghan will consider the names of any suitable gentlemen recommended to him for appointment to the Commission of the Peace in this district. I have nothing to add to this statement.


Does the right honourable Gentleman think that an answer to my Question?


Yes, or I should never have given it.
