§ MR. BRAMSDON (Portsmouth)
To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty if he will say how many men are now eligible to become Greenwich Age Pensioners, and how many actually receive these pensions; what is the annual amount set apart from Greenwich Hospital funds for the purpose of paying these age pensions, and how much would be required annually if all eligible men were actually provided for; and will he give similar information with reference to the years 1891 and 1895.
§ (Answered by Mr. Edmund Robertson.)
§ Law Officers of the Crown was consulted upon the subject of the Longford petty sessions clerkship, which was filled by election on the 8th June, when Mr. E. Daly M'Cann was appointed: whether in this case the opinion of the chief Crown solicitor for Ireland was taken; and, if so, whether such matters are as a rule referred to him or to the Attorney-General or Solicitor-General for Ireland.
§ (Answered by Mr. Bryce.) It would be entirely contrary to practice and plainly inconsistent with principle to give the detailed information asked for in the Question.
