§ MR. WOOD (Down Co., E.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he can state the number of privy councillors, land commissioners, land sub-commissioners, county court valuers, judges of the superior courts, county court judges, resident magistrates, county inspectors of police, and district inspectors holding office in Ireland; and how many of each class are Presbyterians.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
There are sixty seven resident magistrates, of whom five are Presbyterians; thirty-three county inspectors, none of whom are Presbyterians; and 214 district inspectors, of whom eight profess that religion. I have already more than once stated that I have 312 no official knowledge of the religious denominations applicable to persons occupying the other positions mentioned.
