§ MR. JOHN CAMPBELL
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he will consider the advisability of making the tenure of the office of Director of Public Prosecutions the same as that of Comptroller and Auditor-General, viz.: during good behaviour, and removable only on an Address by both Houses of Parliament.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
No, Sir; I do not think any ground has yet been shown for the change to be made in our machinery for criminal prosecutions which the hon. Gentleman desires. I have, therefore, no intention of making it.
