§ MR. NANNETTI (Dublin, College Green)
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney General for Ireland, as representing the Lord Chancellor, whether, seeing that the Bankruptcy General Orders, No. 255, lay down that no official assignee shall directly or indirectly carry on any trade or business or be engaged in any office or employment other than his office and employment as official assignee, he will state if the action of Mr. McEntire, in acting, as an expert witness in handwriting at Criminal Law and Procedure and other cases, was in accordance with this rule; and whether he will take steps to prevent official assignees being employed in this capacity in future.
§ THE ATTOENEY GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. ATKINSON,) Londonderry, N.
This Question is substantially a repetition of that addressed to me by the hon. Member on the 23rd July. To the reply given by me on that occasion I have nothing to add. †
