§ 11. Mr. KING
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that previous to the Disestablishment of the Irish Church the appointment of public notaries was made by the Archbishop of Armagh as Primate of all Ireland, and that subsequently they have been appointed by the Lord Chancellor of Ireland; and whether he is now prepared to state that the new Clause to the Established Church (Wales) Bill, of which notice has been given by the hon. Member for North Somerset, to transfer the appointment of public notaries in Wales to the Lord Chancellor, will be accepted by the Government?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
The answer to both parts of the question is in the affirmative.
