Mr. FIELD () Dublin, St. Patrick
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he is aware that the County Court litigants of Castletown Berehaven, county Cork, have to travel to Skibbereen twice a year to quarter sessions, a distance of 50 miles; and whether, seeing that the population of the Castletown Berehaven district was at the last census over 12,000, the Lord Chancellor of Ireland would convenience the inhabitants of the Castletown Berehaven district by having at least one sitting per year of the County Court Judge of the West Riding of Cork at Castletown Brehaven?
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
I have no reason to believe that the fact is not as stated in the first paragraph. No representations appear to have been received from those locally interested in favour of the course suggested in the second paragraph; any such communication, however, if addressed to the Lord Lieutenant and Privy Council, will have due consideration.
