§ SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)
To ask Mr. Attorney-General, with reference to a statement made on behalf of His Majesty's Government at the time of the passing of the County Court Jurisdiction Extension Act, with regard to the coming into operation of that Act, whether there could be given as a Parliamentary Paper any memorials received by the Lord Chancellor from the County Court Judges, or any committee of their body, on the subject; and what steps His Majesty's I Government intend to take in reference to the matter.
(Answered by Sir Robert Finlay.) I understand that it would not be in accordance with usage that such communications between the Lord Chancellor and the County Court Judges should be treated as public documents. I am not yet in a position to state what steps His I Majesty's Government intend to take in reference to the subject of the Question, but the matter is now under consideration.
