HC Deb 27 May 1908 vol 189 cc1116-7
MR. HENRY (Shropshire, Wellington)

I beg to ask the Prime Minister if he could make arrangements that Members might have the opportunity to be answered by a Member of the Government in this House Questions relative to matters which are under the jurisdiction of the Lord Chancellor, and upon which Members of this House may be entitled to information.


The existing arrangements are, in the opinion of my right hon. friend, quite adequate for supplying information to hon. Members in this House relating to matters within the jurisdiction of the Lord Chancellor; but if my hon. friend will bring to the notice of my right hon. friend the Prime Minister any flaws in their working, he will be glad to consider his representations.


pointed out that the House had no power at present to discuss the action of the Lord Chancellor in regard to the appointment of magistrates, and the retention or removal of County Court Judges.
