§ Mr. MacNEILL
asked the Prime Minister whether, having regard to Viscount Haldane's eminence as a lawyer and the fact of his having been for many years a leader at the bar, he will say if any means exist of making use of his services to assist the Lords of Appeal, although he has not held judicial office; and, if so, whether action will be taken in that direction?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
This matter is under consideration, and I have every reason to hope that a means will be found for taking advantage of the service which my Noble Friend is willing to offer in dealing with judicial matters.
§ Lord BALCARRES
May I ask if that will involve the resignation on the part of the learned and Noble Viscount of his post in the Government?
§ Mr. W. R. PEEL
Will the Noble Viscount be able to take part in Debates on controversial matters in the House of Lords?
