HC Deb 04 February 1904 vol 129 c352
MR. JAMES O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland if he will state the number of Protestants who have been appointed to the Commission of the Peace for the county of Wicklow since the 1st July, 1895, and the number of Roman Catholics who have been appointed magistrates for the same county and during the same period; and, also, the total number of Protestants and Roman Catholics who at the present time hold the Commission of the Peace for the said county of Wicklow.


The numbers referred to in the first paragraph are 36 and 3; and in the second paragraph 106 and 22.


Does the right hon. Gentleman consider that an equal division?

[No answer was returned.]
