Mr. THOMAS RICHARDS
asked the Prime Minister whether, in appointing a county court judge to fill the vacancy caused by the death of the late Judge Owen, he will consider the advisability of establishing one or two new courts in the Western Division of Monmouthshire; and, in view of the increase of population in the county of Monmouth, will he confine the duties of the new appointment to the county area?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The appointment mentioned by the hon. Member does not rest with me, but I will communicate his question to the Lord Chancellor.
