§ MR. SWIFT MACNEILL (Donegal, S.)
To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether steps will be taken, having regard to the interests of the public service, to ascertain and establish the status of the clerical staff of the Irish Registry of Titles Central Office, which is at present undetermined; and whether the Law Officers of the Crown have been consulted as to the best means of placing the members of this staff in a well-defined, and established position.
(Answered by Mr. Bryce.) I beg to refer to the Supreme Court of Judicature (Ireland) Bill, recently introduced by my right hon. and learned friend the Attorney-General for Ireland, which contains provisions regarding the status of both the present and future clerical staff of the office in question.
