§ MR. T. L. CORBETT (Down, N.)
I beg to ask Mr. Attorney-General if he will lay upon the Table a Copy of the Instructions recently issued to Crown 305 Solicitors as to the discharge of their duties in ordering jurors to stand by.
§ THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL FOR IRELAND (Mr. CHERRY,) Liverpool, Exchange
No new instructions have been recently issued to Crown Solicitors as to the discharge of their duties in ordering jurors to stand by. I have recently communicated by letter with each Crown Solicitor in Ireland, in pursuance of the intention I expressed in answer to the Question addressed to me by the hon. Member for North Sligo on Thursday last, † impressing upon him the importance of strict compliance with the Rule on the subject at present in force. This Rule, which was originally issued in February, 1894, was laid on the Table of this House (Paper No. 33 of 1894).
