HC Deb 25 April 1902 vol 106 c1329

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he will state the number of High Court Judges, County Court Judges, and Resident Magistrates in Ireland: and how many in each class profess the religious faith of the majority of the Irish people.


I have no official knowledge of the religious denominations of Judges of the High Court, or of County Court Judges. Any information open to me on the subject would be derived from unofficial sources, which are equally open to the hon. Member. With respect to Resident Magistrates, of the sixty-eight now serving, nineteen are Roman Catholics.
