§ MR. CHARLES McARTHUR (Liverpool, Exchange)
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney-General whether Sir Arthur Charles has been appointed Dean of Arches; if so, whether the appointment has been made under the Public Worship Regulation Act, and approved by the Crown, as required by that Act, also when such approval was signified; if the appointment has been made otherwise than under the Public Worship Regulation Act, and under what law and by whose authority it has been made.
§ *MR. JESSE COLLINGS
It has been decided to appoint Sir Arthur Charles to be a Judge of the Provincial Courts of Canterbury and York, pursuant to the Public Worship Regulation Act, 1874, Section 7; and the necessary formal steps for the making of the appointment by the Archbishops, and its approval and ratification by the Crown, are now being carried out. A Dean of Arches is not now appointed.
